    Looks Neanderthal. Looks like he has growth hormone issues.

    He’s not ugly. Thats’s what one calls “charakter face”. And it’s always fun see him acting.

      I think you mean a face with “character”.

      That’s something people tell ugly kids to make them feel better (e.g. “your nose isn’t too big; it gives you character!” (translation: Holy phook your nose is buge)).

        You needed to translate it? :D

        His face is as individual as his personality. That means “character”. I’m no friend of plastic surgery mainstream faces who all look the same.
