In a video about COS i saw a skull on their alter. What are the skull use to? What does it represent?

It depends on what kind of a ritual it was used for.

I just know I would be fucking pissed off if my skull was used on someone's altar!

More than likely, as Nahemoth stated, 'memento mori'.  A thought to the finality of all.  I personally have a wolf skull placed on my altar...  They are very aesthetically pleasing to some folk, and a good way to channel and focus Will/Energy for destruction rituals.

I'd imagine the CoS uses such a skull for the aesthetic psycho-dramatic bend of it.  Though I have heard that lately the use of a white candle set atop a skull has replaced the standard white candle used for burning writings during ritual, so both my above statements could be valid.  In hindsight, I suppose they are pretty much interchangeable.
