That head gear may have been Starfleet issued. It did match his uniform all the time. Red to match his shoulders in cadet uniform, and gray to match the shoulders in his officer's uniform.
The point is he was allowed to wear it because it was a cultural/religious thing similar to Ro's Bajoran earring that Riker jumped her case for.
The difference being that, if Nog's head gear were Starfleet issue, that would make it acceptable by definition. Ro's earring was not Starfleet issue and therefore subject to approval, which Riker decided to revoke, because he didn't like her. He relented later.
I can see that being an issue. If one culture is allowed to wear cultural items then it should be fair across the board.
