How to tell if I have headstuds?

Is there anyway to see if my truck really has headstuds? The previous owner say he did but you can never trust anyone, so is there anyway to take a quick peak at something and look? Thanks!

Yep. Pop the hood and look at the front of the motor at the passenger side valve cover on the bottom right corner and if you see a decently large 12 point nut, then you have studs. If you have a 6 point nut, then you dont. You could also take a pic of this location and post it and I'll tell you what you have. Hope this helps.

IMO yes it is. Basically you are looking for "normal looking" nuts just outside of the valve cover. If you see that, you're good.
