The toddler’s siblings call him Boris because of his barnet, he is unusually similar to the prime minister.
Cohen Jax’s older siblings are naughty because of their naughty soft blondes because she looks like Boris Johnson.
And the three-year-old only had one haircut because the barbers don’t want to cut his hair.
His mother, Aimee Ponsford, is convinced that her boyfriend has uncombed hair syndrome – a condition that causes his toddler to have curly, dry and fluffy hair.
His siblings, 6-year-old Crayson and 10-year-old Harlie, call him “Boris” because of his resemblance to the Tory leader.
Aimee, 29, said: “All of his siblings call him Boris, and when we’re at school, so do their friends.
“He was bald when he was about a year old and then he started growing those little white strands like fluff.
“His hair really isn’t very thick, they look full and thick because of the way they stand, but they’re not. Since then, they’ve just grown into more madness!”
But Aimee, the cleaning company’s director, has a different comparison for her son’s hair and says they’re more like candy strands.
“It’s really soft and really nice,” said a mother from Fareham in Hampshire.
She added: “It comes out very easily, so if you run your fingers through it, it comes out.
“It’s like before sugar, that’s the best way I can describe it.”
The barbers were also confused by the toddler’s mane and didn’t want to cut it off, Aimee said, and Kohen Jax was turned down by three different hairdressers.
“He only had one haircut in his life and my friend was the one who just cut off a little bit,” she said.
“Whenever we were at the barber shop, everyone said they wouldn’t touch his hair.
“They’ve never seen anything like it before, so they don’t even want to try to cut it.”
Passers-by are also commenting on Cohen Jax’s hair, and mom said some have asked if they can touch it.
“I usually just overhear someone saying ‘wow, look at his hair’ or something, and I know they’re talking about him. Obviously everyone usually wants to touch him and I’m usually happy to let them if he is.
“People are always amazed at how soft it is, they think it’s really rough and tough, but it’s not.”
Although the family has not yet received an official diagnosis, Aimee is convinced she has uncombed hair syndrome.
She said: “It wasn’t something our doctor mentioned, just my mother-in-law googled his hair and it showed up.
“All the symptoms they described matched his hair exactly, so I’m sure that’s it.
“I am Facebook group for this condition, and from this I learned that it is quite difficult to get a formal diagnosis.
“You have to send blood and a hair sample to Germany because I believe they are doing more research on this than in the UK.”
