What is the brown stuff on top of a Cauliflower?

When I buy cauliflower I eat it raw in a salad or with a dip. But when I see the brown spots on top, I usually scrape them off or remove the piece. What exactly is this brown stuff? Is it natural discoloration that is not harmful and can be eaten, or is it a sign of decay and should be discarded and not eaten?

its like when a plant wilts and turns a little brown ..some ppl would just toss the whole thing ..but personally i just get rid of the brown part and eat the rest..its fine
