This worries me. If your n and h are normalized, then dot(n, h) is in the range [-1,+1] so what you describe shouldn't happen.
I.m having problems with dot(n, h) exponent, because its numeric value is to big
Are you sure your vectors are normalized?

Also, the pow function does not work with values below or equal 0 because the implementation is done with the equation exp(log(value) * value). Try to put something like this: max(dot(…), 0.0001f);
