    Look For Words!

    Hello:

    There are several English words that I am looking for. First, I don't know what it is called for a circle of hair on my head. Second, I don't know the word that describes a hole on someone's cheek when that person smiles. And last, what is the name of an extra tooth of someone sticking out from the upper teeth set on the side and you can see it. If you know, please help me learn these words. Thanks so much.

    Tuan

    An extra tooth that is longer than the other front teeth and comes to a sharp point? Such as a vampire has? Those teeth are called fangs.

    Thanks for your help. The dimple was exactly what i was looking for. I still haven't found the words for the hair circle on back top of my head and the extra tooth.

    The extra tooth is called a supernumerary tooth.

    Superb. Thanks so much for your great help. The hair swirl pattern was called cowlick. And the extra tooth was call the supernumerary tooth. I looked these words up in my English-VNese dictionary and I found them.
