    Am I the only one who has a slightly small: Right eye, Right eye socket; big: Right arm, Right leg????

    Everything i hear from my right side seems to be louder than the left side.*

    It also got me thinking that in my family line, They didn't have curly-wavy hair; and i'm the only person who has it in my family(which is soo weird).


    So i respectfully ask again, Mutation or Heredity?icon_surprised.gif

    Our face is one of the first things to develop in embryo stage (first 6-8 weeks). One of the things to look for in pediatrics is facial asymmetry. I.E. - one ear might be lower or eyebrows, etc.

    These small asymmetries do/can warrant a chromosomal mutation.

    Did you have ear infections when you were younger? LE, RE, both ears? It is very possible to hear better in one ear than the other. However, with this facial deformation things could be a little difference in your case.

    Some people have an enlarged aquaduct in their cochlea that gives them 'supersonic' hearing in low frequencies (Semicircular canal dehissence). Can only be diagnosed with CT scan.

    I don't have facial unsymmetry(for sure). I could tell if i did.....

    And no, i didn't have any ear infections when i was young.

    I really don't know whats wrong with me, i never consulted a Doctor or my parents(since both of them dont really care or take it seriously, lol).

    CT scan....hmm.....

    Thanks for the Epic reply, its WAY better than that stupid skinny-sh*tface dude who posted the really rude pic(which i ignored) on the top. icon_razz.gif

    Just to be precise:

    when you ask "mutation or genes" .. there's really no question being asked...

    You mean to say "mutation or NON-mutation"

    Or: "mutation or hereditary"

    Because the mutations happen IN the genes, .. so you cant have one without the other...

    (Im sorry, former bio-major here, perhaps being too nitpicky...)

    nobody is perfectly symetrical... everyone has one foot bigger than the other, one leg longer, one hand smaller, one arm shorter, etc.

    how can you tell that your right eye socket is small? you couldn't see it unless you could look at your skull. you might have a slightly more fat above your right eyeball which causes the skin in your eyelid to fold more and make your eye look a little smaller.

    i've drawn a lot of portraits and if you hold a ruler up in front of someone's face and start lining things up.... nothing is the same. one nostril is lower, one ear is higher, your lips are not perfectly horizontal, your eyebrows are different and almost everyone's eyes have one that's slightly more open than the other. it is part of what makes you an individual and in drawing, when you put those in, the portrait looks bang on but when you correct them it doesn't look like the person you're drawing.

    It genes as time goes on we mutate for instance wisdom teeth we once used them when our jaws were longer but over time it shrunk but the teeth still grow. In my family my grandpa had blue eyes thought it was cataract but he was born with it my great grandfather had green eyes but me black eyes. But I got the hair tho so yea.

    I don't think your situation is all that unusual. There was a classmate in college who was sooo fine and she knew. One eye opened slightly more than the other, but one didn't see it unless they were right up in her face. She also had a nasty personality and would flaunt her beauty. Just to bring her back to Earth, she would be addressed as Miss Cyclops. It worked every time.
