My son has no eyebrows or eyelashes. He has frizzy blonde hair. Will the eyelashes grow in later?

Have you not asked his pedeatrican about this? There is a condition that causes this, he may or may not have. I have known 2 people with this and they had no hair on any part of their body (or minimal hair on their head) Another girl I knew has the course textured hair (VERY BLONDE) and barely any eyebrows and eyelashes. They all were very fair skinned. I would ask his dr. about it, there are several things it could be or he could just be a fair skinned blonde boy with not much hair. Otherwise, is he developing normally? I'm sure he'll be fine, I would just make sure he always uses sunscreen and wears a hat in the sun. Good luck and I hope I gave you some ideas to help a little.
