    Question around the edges

    I need help on these two idioms:
    1. squidgy round the edges
    2. live around the edges
    What do they mean? Please. Thank you very much.

    People are probably busy with weekend fun.

    The context, for instance, is like "Only the people who live round the edges are allowed in."

    and, for squidgy round the edges, we got this:
    He used to be handsome, now kind of squidgy round the edges.

    Could you please define them more, please? Thanks.

    The context, for instance, is like "Only the people who live round the edges are allowed in." They are the people on the fringe of society or on the edge of a community.

    and, for squidgy round the edges, we got this:
    He used to be handsome, now kind of squidgy round the edges. He was goodlooking, but he's got a bit soft and fat.

    Could you please define them more, please? Thanks.
