Kids are born with eyelashes and eyebrows. A lack of them would lead to eye problems. They are probably just too blonde to see. If you really can't feel any hairs there, talk to a doctor!

He must have fair hair and fair skin? My niece was born with really fine fair red hair, and we didn't get a good look at her eyebrows or lashes until was almost 4. Don't fret, they must be there, just not noticable.

Yes... he's a little blondie! He's lucky that people can actually see his hair! hahaha My oldest was blonde like that at birth. Even in the pic of yours, I can see his eyebrows reflected in the light. Being so fair, he might not get "real" eyebrows until puberty... but he does have them!! ;) Same with his eyelashes. They might not really show until puberty. He is a cutie! ;)

He has none at all or just really light? My son unfortunately inherited my eyebrows and his were huge and dark from day one. All kids are different. I would just ask his dr. if you are concerned about it.

I mean he has a couple of eyelashes but no eyebrows. Maybe they are just to light to see.

Wow. My little man was born with eye lashes and eye brows. I didn't even know that they didn't get them until later in their lives.

They're fine hairs at birth, but should've gotten thicker way before now.  If he has none at all, I suggest you talk to your pediatrician.

Hmm... My nephew is three and has had eyelashes and eyebrows since one for sure.
