Me and my Fiancé live together with our daughter, and she makes more than I do. If I am claiming our daughter, does it matter which one claims head of household?

The person who pays more than half the cost of keeping up the home is the one who files as  Head of Household. The relative income isn't the question, it's who paid the expenses.
