Why is my head larger than average

Hi, I'm 16 and my head is larger than normal when I'm next to other people its quite noticeable. I'm also small in body size compared to most other people as well which just makes it worse, I mean my dad has a larger body (taller and broader) yet i have a larger head. Is there a reason for this?

Re: Why is my head larger than average

You may not have finished growing. At 16 that would be very common. And some people just have smaller or larger heads. I can cite many examples - even a TV star that is often commented on here in the US as having a larger head than one would expect on a girl her size. What does your pediatrician say?

Many successful models have larger heads!

Perhaps your body just hasn't quite grown into it yet. It's just like why do some people have very long legs or a long torso? We all have the same parts. They just come in different proportions!
