There is a massive lagspike while the game tries to load a player head texture. This can even lead to the game completely freezing if the game is in offline mode or the player the skin is supposed to be loaded from doesn't exist.
- Delete the skin cache in .minecraft/assets/skins
→ If you're offline, your game will freeze completely, otherwise it will take a second or two before the skin is loaded and the game continues.
- Place the player head down
→ The game freezes
