Apparently, his parents thought at first that their baby boy had albinism, a “congenital disorder that leaves a person with a complete or partial lack of pigment in their skin, hair, and eyes,” as per Newsner.
This then made his parents worry, so doctors examined the baby’s blood to figure out his true condition.
Just like a miracle, the doctors reported that Baby Bence’s white hair is “not a sign of illness or prenatal stress,” hence, he is very much normal like any other newborn baby!
It was likewise noted that his hair would grow darker through the years. However, there were still some people who cannot seem to stop debating about Baby Bence’s possible condition.
Look at what others had to say below:
“It can be an indication of albinism … It may look really pretty but could be bad for the child. It can be under diagnosed. One of my grandchildren has yellow albinism. It was brought to our attention by the eye doctor when he was 2. He is now 12 and is considered legally blind.”
“Uh there is different types of albinism, my daughter was born with hair like that, guess what she has dirty blonde hair now and has some pigment but she has albinism.”
Meanwhile, this netizen identified Baby Bence’s condition with that of her daughter’s.
Here are the comments from the netizens:
