    Sorry about quality of pics but she was mad and wouldn’t hold still. I can try for better pics if needed.

    Since she’s a Polish... it honestly looks sort of like a part of a comb? :idunno

    That’s what I told my husband...that it may be a part of the comb. Since she has these deformities, the comb might be deformed too. But, it’s always good to hear it from someone who knows what they’re talking about!! Or at least sounds like they do!! :lau Thanks
