In my book (Guide complet des dinosaures), I've a picture of the skull
of Garudimimus. I can see that he has a sort of outgrowth above
his large sockets. It is supposed that this dinosaur had a horn
(or more likely a crest) on the top of his skull, but there is no evidence.

I have no further informations.
Maybe somebody else can give you more details.
I hope my reply is correct,
