My son is about three years old and doesn't look like his dad at all. He looks like me a little bit but not that much.
He has brown eyes like me and his father. But he has black hair? I have naturally blonde hair and his dad has medium brown. I am fully white and his father is fully (very pale) Brazilian. I have a darker skin tone than his father but my son has a very dark tan skin tone (which actually matches my dads quite well).
Point blank, his jaw, lips, certain features, etc. do not resemble his father very well. Only a few people have mentioned he looks like me more than his dad but not many. My child's father never met his own dad so I have no idea what he looks like or his side (because I know genetics can carry from the grandparents and other genes). I feel like my sons dad questions sometimes and this bothers me as we are not together anymore and I know for sure he is the dad. I do not want a paternity test.
Is this just recessive genes or will he begin to look like his dad more later? He has lost a lot of his baby-puddgy faced quality's and is starting to look like his true face. How do I deny a paternity test politely ? He has not asked for a test yet, and I am not asking for child support.
