Ugh...I hate when patterns are written like this. It makes it incredibly hard to follow. So - Having it broken up more properly should help you figure it out. I know this sounds funny..short rows are always confusing at first..but just do them and you'll see they make sense.

SHORT-ROW SHAPING THE HEAD:
Decreases and angling are achieved in a manner similar to turning the heel of a sock. -

Knit to within 3 stitches of the end of the first row of the head. WITHOUT knitting the last 3 stitches, turn

knit to within 3 stitches of the other end. WITHOUT working the last 3 stitches, turn.

(Short rows are created across the middle 14 stitches with a gap between them and a set of 3 stitches at each end.)

Knit 13 stitches then knit the 14th stitch together with the first of the 3 reserved stitches at the end. Turn

knit 13 stitches then knit the 14th stitch together with the first of the 3 reserved stitches at the other end.

Turn and continue as established knitting 13 stitches and then a 14th together with a reserved stitch at the end until all the reserved end stitches are used up (the 14 middle stitches remain).

After you do this ask again if you need help with the next segment.
