It's very cute. I would call it a "star and stripe". It's probably caused by sabino and frame interacting - sabino making it go the whole length of the face and stay even, frame trying to make it top heavy and spread above the eyes.

Well, it looks a bit (and I feel do immature saying this) like a swimmy sperm.
He's a doll!!

Funny! My husband loves him for that reason. I picked him out and then saw the front of his head. We started laughing, but he is really cute! I was kinda in shock when I saw his markings. I have never seen this mark before on a strange! I love the look of him

It also looks like a balloon on a string!

Either way, he is cute.

Defiantly a star, stripe, snip combo on his face. I have to agree with Dressage10135, it does look like a balloon!
