Yes if it hurts with a red spot now it will only be worse the longer you wear it.
I would say that model, size helmet doesn't fit your head. Look at some of their other models and you might find one that does. I wouldn't recommend it but I know riders with hard to fit head who have crushed the foam where they have a hot spot like that.
Me I would rather have a lid that fits right.
