Head leaking oil ? ! ?

Went to go remove my valve cover so i can repolish it again. I was also going to clean up the rest of the engine bay then i noticed this leak on the right side of the head and valve cover. Anyone have info on this issue if it is safe or what causes it please feel free to let me know. Thank you

My car is having the same issue, so I would like to see what the outcome is of this, because I have noticed it dripping oil on the ground.

i havent pinpointed exactly where it is, but it appears that its on the rear of the motor on the driver side of the car, so close to the same area

check the oil galley plug on the side of the head. The bolt is right in this picture little bolt with an allen head access pattern that could be your source, or have your engine warm up and then watch where it could be leaking from after you shut if off. Let it run for about ten minutes before shutting it off that is where the head pressure will be good enough and settled down a little bit to about 40 psi.
