    Look up the verb "wonder" and then try to rewrite your sentence using that verb.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    The sentence is not a question, so it shouldn't end with a question mark.

    No, you haven't. I see that you have edited post 1 but it doesn't use the word "wonder". Anyway, as we have told you before, you should not edit a post after it has received responses. Write a new post (not a new thread) now, using the word "wonder".

    Write out the sentence again, using 'wonder' instead of 'think', and making other necessary changes to the wording of the sentence and the final punctuation mark.

    Sometimes I wonder that how would Tom have looked when he was six? (Is it a question now?)

    It's not a question.
