He?s only 4yo. Found it this morning whilst brushing his hair, thought it might just be a trick of the light but on closer inspection it is definitely there. Anyone else come across this? Is it anything to worry about?

DD1 has this. She is 7 and for the last three years or so she has had one grey hair! I am not worried as it has multiplied I think that maybe that one just doesn't have any colour.

Thanks goingfor3. Must admit I had a mini freak out this morning when I saw it!

ds was born with a grey patch and now he has 2 quite big ones, fil went grey at 19 so I hope it hasnt skipped a generation

Was tempted to pull it out! Had horrible vision of getting him up one morning to find he'd gone completely grey overnight shock

I found some grey hairs on ds when he was 4. I left them to fall out naturally and once they had gone they never came back (he has just turned 9) So I think it is just one of those freaky things the body does every so often.

Thanks everyone! Won't be rushing out to get the hair dye just yet!!
