Fallout 4 Bobbleheads boost your SPECIAL stats and enhance abilities, including boosting critical damage for various weapon types, giving you easier lockpicking and longer-lasting fusion cores for your power armor. They'll actually take you above the 10 point max, to 11, if you find one after you reach it, so it's well worth waiting to collect them - if you find one below 10 you can't then go above it later. 

Here's where to find all 20 Fallout 4 bobbleheads in the Commonwealth.
