    • Your if statements are wrong, you probably meant to use "==".
    • Don't put function bodies in the header file
    • Don't capitalize function names, that's standard for macros.
    • Find a new way to check for winner. Your "if" statements took up eight wrapping lines on a standard 80-character window.
    • You're declaring a global board[3][3] in both files, and they are different variables. Learn how to pass variables, and declare it in main.
    • You aren't error checking. If someone enters 4, it'll go out of bounds and probably crash.
    • You're using flaggy code, and that's poor style.

    Fix these things, and we can help you with the actual issue.

    Thank you for you answer. I didn't realize that I had a single equals sign in my if statement.
