Very few people are born with tiny, barely visible holes above their ears.
Not everyone is the same. There are a select few among us who were born with abnormal organs or features, such as 6 toes or toes, an extra set of nipples, conjoined toes, etc. ear, where their temple is. Very few people are born with tiny, barely visible holes above their ears. No, they are not foreigners. She’s as natural as anyone could be. A small part of the population is born with this hole, scientifically known as the “sinus in front of the ear”.
What is a sinus?
This is a common birth defect characterized by a lump, indentation, or dimple located anywhere near the ear. Only 4 to 10% of the population in Asia and Africa have this anomaly, 0.9% in the United Kingdom and 0.1 to 0.9% in the United States. Your chances of finding someone with this strange piercing are higher among Africans and Asians.
How is it formed?
It is formed as a result of defects in the development of the first and second pharyngeal arches. It was first recognized by scientist Van Heusinger in 1864. These sinuses are usually located on one side of the face, but 50% of people have these sinuses in both ears.
According to Business Insider, groundbreaking biologist Neil Shubin claims that this hole may be an evolutionary remnant of fish gills. This means that humans evolved from “fish”!
If you are part of this anomaly, there is no need to worry. You don’t have to worry about this birth defect because it doesn’t cause any problems. The only one problem is that these three people are prone to infections, which can be treated easily with the help of antibiotics. In case of exacerbation of the infection, surgery is performed to get rid of the sinuses.
If you look closely, it might look like a pre-made hole! But it is advisable not to put jewelry on it, maybe if you don’t want to hurt yourself.
