Question Help. Conure stepping on other bird.

We just recently bought a new green cheek conure. Hes very friendly and gets along with my cinammon cockatiel they are both like 1 year old. And my concern is that my conure preens and regurgitated for my cockatiel but for some reason starts stepping on her head and neck. I don't know if he's trying to mate but doesn't know how? He just keeps stepping on her neck and head and she doesn't seem to complain when he puts his foot on her head, I just want to know if this behavior is normal and if it is safe for him to put his foot on her. She complains and bites when he steps on her neck and gets away. They are not in the same cage this happens during play time on their playground. And I do separate them out of concern. Also she doesn't seem to be wanting to mate she seems like she just wants to be preened. Has anyone had this issue as well? I tried googling it but couldn't find anything on bird behavior of stepping on other birds heads.
