Question

 

 

 

Hi,

My son has Optic nerve hypoplasia. No one seems to notice or find this bizarre.   Ive searched and found things that look similar. I was curious if this is affecting his vision as well as the Optic nerve hypoplasia.

And if anyone has any idea from a pic what it might be. 

Thanks
