kittens eye oddly shaped

As my kitten is getting older I've notice his one eye lid is different then the other. It has a different shape and sticks out from his eye. I hope this is just how he is and doesn't effect him or mean anything. I have a picture but I don't know how to add it on here. I don't really even know how to explain what it looks like. But it looks odd...

  • I couldn't figure it out because I was on my phone, it didn't give me the options it does on my laptop. Hope you can see what I'm talking about in the picture.

  • It does look a little different. Is it noticeable when his eye is open? Its not inflamed or anything is it? 

  • I'm not a vet, but my first thought was either entropion or ectropion (the difference being which way the eyelid rolls, in (entropion) or out (ectropion). Your baby does appear to have a bit of a roll in his eyelid but it's hard to tell from pictures only, and it could be something else entirely such as injury or infection. Does his eye get weepy or mucky? 

    I have to add that he is just gorgeous. Grin.gif

  • Thank you! I just love him!!!

    I don't think it's inflamed or infected. He was seen by a vet last Thursday and I pointed out the brown junk he gets in his eyes and he said his eyes look fine. I didn't really start noticing his eye lid till after the vet. It's not really noticable when they are open. What made me even look closer to his eye, he kept closing his eyes and opening them. Like he looked really sleepy. I noticed he does that often. So I just looked closer to his eyes and noticed that. Is what you suggested it could be, is that bad?
    Next time he goes for his kitten shots I was going to point it out to the vet.
  • I couldn't think of the word and now I thought of it lol, hes squinting sometimes.
  • I don't want to jump the gun and tell you it is entropion, but if you read a bit about it yourself you can check his symptoms.

  • I took him into the vet this morning. Nothing is wrong with his eye other then it's swollen. He needs antibiotics because he has the herpes virus. So I guess that's ok news. I'm glad it wasn't ectropion or entropion! Not happy about the herpes virus. .
