@DeclairedOk, well his username is BenWright, so we should assume his name is Ben, which is a males name, anyways, listen to your dad, when your parent's tell you to do something with your appearance maybe you just look ridiculous with the item they want you to change :P
Hey, Ben! I'd go ahead and shave it off. A lot of people disagree with this. But, in many instances, the more you shave, the thicker your hair will get. (At least that's how it is with my mustache.) LOL
Negative waves dude sport the thing everybody in high school wants a stash I know I did . Talk to your dad tell him man do you forget what it's like when you could grow your first stash . What's the big deal its my face . Save you embarrassment I don't think so if you like it that's all that matters. Just try not to stroke it all the time that's what looks strange cuz it makes everybody focus on it and won't even hear what you say coz they are looking at you stroking the thing.
