A baby with so much hair it could be seen on his ultrasound scan already has a quiff measuring in at five inches long.
Oliver Dunn, from Nampa in Idaho, shocked medical staff not only in the womb but also after his birth when he came out with a full head of hair.
Ever since, it’s continued to grow an inch a month and now at five-months old it stands at an impressive five inches tall.
Oliver Dunn’s hair is already five inches long and he’s only five months old – his quiff sticks up on end and can’t be tamed
The young tot’s extremely static hair refuses to be tamed, and his parents have tried everything to get it to stick down
Oliver was born with a full head of hair and it has continued to grow at a rate of an inch a month and shows no sign of slowing down
Amused parents Angie and Brian Dunn, 33 and 32, say people are besotted with his ‘do and constantly try to touch his tufts.
Despite combing and wetting his head, his parents say nothing will stop the rebellious quiff from sticking up and say it makes him look like he’s been ‘permanently electrocuted’.
Angie, a first-grade teacher, said: ‘Oliver was born with a full head of hair and he’s not lost any of it since then, if anything it became longer, puffier and thicker.
‘His hair is now around five inches on the top and doesn’t look like it’s going to stop growing any time soon.
‘It’s so static-like that it looks like he’s been electrocuted and no matter what I try, it won’t keep down.
‘Like most mum’s do, I’ve licked my finger and tried to stick it down, but it never works, it’s like his hair is static all of the time.
‘Some people have commented that he looks like a baby Chris Farley or like Kevin Bacon in Footloose, which I find really funny.
‘Whenever we’re out in public, his hair is the first thing people notice about him, nobody can believe how big it is for such a young baby.
Doctors were stunned at Oliver’s bountiful bonnet after his long locks even showed up in his ultrasound scan
Angie and Brian Dunn, 33 and 32, were amazed at their son’s hair and say that people often comment on how adorable he looks
‘It’s so puffy and fluffy that everyone wants to touch it and think it’s really cute, fortunately Oliver doesn’t mind and is really smiley.
‘No one can believe his age when we tell them, they often think he’s much older because he is such a tiny little guy with such a lot of hair.’
Oliver’s massive mop has always drawn attention even during the ultrasound and straight after he was delivered.
Angie said: ‘The first time we realized was during an ultrasound, when my doctors said “wow, he has a lot of hair.”
‘But even I was surprised how much hair he had when he was born, all the doctors, nurses were shocked because he had a tonne of it.
Because of the way it sticks up on end Oliver’s parents think he looks ‘permanently electrocuted’
The blonde-haired blue eyed youngster was visited by staff members in the hospital who were shocked at the amount of hair he had
‘Even people from other wards were coming into the room just to see his hair.’
Angie maintains she uses no hairspray or product and that his hair is naturally very voluminous.
She said: ‘I don’t use any oils to help grow his hair, I just use regular baby shampoo and that’s it.
‘After giving him a bath, I brush his hair down but it pops back up by the time it’s dried.
‘There’s nothing you can do to make his hair lie down.’
Oliver’s hair is increasing an inch a month and has quicker growth-rate than some adults.
This means he will desperately need a haircut before reaching six-months-old.
Angie said: ‘Most parents have to wait until their baby is one or older for their first haircut, but I think Oliver’s will need to be done much sooner.
His parents don’t want to take too much of his hair away as they think it will change him too much
He gets lots of attention from his adoring public but he remains happy and smiley about it all
Oliver’s amused parents are baffled about where he got so much hair from but think it will be a great story to tell his friends when he eventually goes to school
‘It’s already getting really scruffy and covering his eyes, but I’m a bit cautious as I don’t want it to change too much, I just want it trimmed by about an inch.
‘I’m worried it will change how he looks, because his hair is such a big part of his identity, to see it go would make me very sad.’
The Dunn family have tried to trace where their son gets his long locks from but even they’re stumped.
Angie added: ‘Both me and my husband had hair as babies, but not like this, ours was normal so I don’t know why his is so long and sticks out the way it does.
‘When he’s older he will definitely have a great “Show and Tell” piece for school or better yet I can use it when he brings his first girlfriend home.’
