Kohen Jax Ponsford has frizzy and fluffy blonde hair like the British Prime Minister and the three-year-old has even been nicknamed Boris by his older siblings Harlie and Cayson.

His mother Aimee told The Sun newspaper: "He was bald until one then he started growing white strands.

"His hair is like spun sugar. People are surprised by how soft it is. They think it will be coarse and wiry. They usually want to touch it and I'm happy to let them if he is."

Kohen Jax does not have an official diagnosis but clinicians recognise uncontrollable hair syndrome, even though there are as few as 100 cases worldwide.

Aimee, from Hampshire, added: "He's only had one haircut in his life - a friend of mine just took a bit off the top. Barbers won't touch his hair. They've never seen anything like it."
