my boyfriend has a facial defect, and the best way to describe it is that it looks like the skin on his forehead had been rotated so that where the top middle of his forehead should be is really behind his left ear, and his right eyebrow basically is a straight line down his forehead. his forhead is a little bumpy (not bone, just skin) and his hairline goes really far back. from the eyes down he looks completely average.
he won't really talk about it, for obvious reasons, and i know that when he was a child his parents considered plastic surgery, but i don't know if there was a reason why they didn't.
is it possible that it was birth trauma?
