We study the possibility of detecting non-commutative QED through neutral Higgs boson pair production at a $\gamma\gamma$ collider. This is based on the assumption that H0 interacts directly with the photon as suggested by symmetry considerations. The sensitivity of the cross-sec tion to the non-commutative scale $\Lambda_{\mathrm {{NC}}}$ and the Higgs mass is investigated.
