Do you want to reject them or eat them and send them to /dev/null ?

If you want to reject them something like this would work:

header_checks = regexp:/etc/postfix/regexp_table

and in /etc/postfix/regexp_table something like:
/^Subject: This is the subject I want to reject             REJECT 554
Custom rejection message
