If a racket is 27 inches long, and has a balance point of 12 5/8 is it head light or head heavy. Thanks

Lefty78 is correct. For a 27 inch racquet a balance point above 13.5 inches will make it headheavy and below 13.5 will make it headlight. It's 1pt. for every 1/8 inch above or below the midpoint. Since the racquet you described is 7/8 inches below the midpoint it's 7 pts. headlight.
