My daughter has two completely different shaped ears more at the tip (one rounded the other pointy shaped). I am wondering if this could be connected to mental health as she is a sufferer of depression and anxiety. I read somewhere many years ago that there is a connection I just need a confirmation if this is correct or not or an update on research would be of benefit. many thanks
