  • Maybe he's part chow? lol... j/k
    On a serious note, it may be a little bruising from teeth coming in? Or did he have a fall in the past week that could have caused the bruising?

  • My daughter had the same thing when she was about 10 months, it was scary because she was crying all day ( not like her ) and very clingy she was cutting a tooth ( I believe the doctor said it was blood or bruised but it is normal ) she is 7 now I still remember like it was yesterday. I do not not think it happens very often though.
