A DAD was left baffled when his blonde son was born with an unusual black spot in his hair.
The man shared a photo of his child, showing the little black tufts on a tiny patch of his head – and people said he must have superpowers.
The US-based Reddit dad said: "My son was born with a black spot of hair in his blonde hair.
"It grows in black, and there is no birthmark or discolouration under it."
Many people were highly interested in the special feature, with one internet user commenting: "Your son can look forward to every single barber he ever has commenting on it."
The dad replied: "Lol people ask is ALL the time if we dye that part of his hair. Like no why tf would we dye one spot on his head?"
Many people said they also have a hair spot like this.
One person said: "Myself and both brothers have this, we are all brunette with a white patch of hair."
Another added: "I’ve found my people!"
A third wrote: "He is the chosen one. He’s gonna need a wand."
Meanwhile, one commented: "Your son is a legend in the making."
Sun doctor Carol Cooper said of the phenomenon: “It's called focal scalp hair heterochromia.
“The cause is almost certainly genetic.
“Since fair hair gradually darkens as a child grows up, it may become less visible, or even invisible, over time.”
