Top 9 Celebrities With Flat Heads






Have you ever wondered which celebrities have flat heads? You might be surprised by some of the names on this list. A flat head is a condition where the back or side of the head is flattened, often due to sleeping in one position for too long as a baby. It can also be caused by genetic factors, craniosynostosis or plagiocephaly. Believe it or not, there are some famous people who have unusually flat heads. Here are some examples of celebrities with flat heads and how they cope with this condition.

Yao Ming should be admired for his achievements and contributions not mocked for his appearance.
