An angel is a supernatural being in various religions. The theological study of angels is known as angelology.
Oliver Brown was born with a rare skin condition that makes him look like he has feathered wings across his upper back.
Parents of Oliver Matt and Stephanie Brown are convinced their son is a real-life angel. Oliver was born with “feathered wings” that take up half of his back. These wing-like markings start from his neck and end halfway down his spine.
His mum Steph, 34, calls her son her ‘angel’ to boost his confidence.
Oliver was at birth diagnosed with Congenital Melanocytic Naevi (CMN) – oversized moles or birthmarks which affect just one person in every hundred.
But doctors have warned that the unusual condition could be deadly if it turns cancerous so little Oliver has to be checked every three months.
Steph told Mason’s News: “Oliver is one of the fortunate ones. Some children are riddled with moles and even get them on their eyelids.
“He actually has his on the top half of his back so it looks like wings. There can be lots of questions because it comes up to the nape of his neck and so is visible.
“‘He is lucky in the sense he is such a cutie pop, everyone seems to think so, and I think people will overlook his condition.”
