How do you? Roll a flat headbadge with out damaging it?
No sure about NO damage, but my custom head badge hammered into a mould with a piece of steel tube. The mould was a block of timber I ran a spade bit through then cut in half.
I’m sure I have a photo somewhere, but not in this phone.
It may be more complex, if the badge is the embossed type, not quite starting out as flat, but with 3 dimensions.
As indicated above, for flat (tweaked or de-bent) badges, I use an unpainted head tube, and a flat piece of thin soft wood and use a rubber mallet to hammer the badge to the desired shape.
If embossed, try using chamois cloth as additional cushion; an alternative may be to fill-in the back recesses (or front details) with a temporary filler material, (silicone or latex caulk or similar) that may later be removed.
