***NOT A TEACHER***
I think it is "squint."
I must admit that I was rather surprised by that definition of "squint" which, to me, is when you screw your eyes up small to try to read something or because there is a very bright light.
For me, the child in the picture is "cross-eyed" or "boss-eyed", although admittedly the first usually means that both eyes look in to the centre. He might also be said to have a "lazy eye".
Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
The medical term is strabismus.

Thank you,emsr2d2, so very much for your precious help. I couldn't agree more with your feedback. Your version hit the bull's-eye. Great job! I think that "the eyes seem to be looking something else" is the closet in meaning to "the eyes look in different direction" Correct me, please?
