    These are our 9 year olds (please excuse the bed hair).

    Default Boys with long hair

    And this (centre) is the 13yo (faces obscured for privacy). He's got curly hair but straightens it with gel to get this look. You'll be hard pressed to find boys this age with short back and sides around here.

    We live in a small country town and I've only had people from that town comment. Everyone else is cool. Our local school only has about 120 kids and only 1 boy (high school) has long hair.

    Does he have a defined part on the side or middle?

    I would start using a small amount of product to try and tame the hair at the front until it gets long enough to tuck behind his ears.

    Agree with others that you won't be able to stop folks from occasionally making comments (which they really shouldn't) - best to just have some good responses under your belt!

    No part at all. The only bit of scalp visible is the crown. I'm debating getting him some clips for Christmas. I have a friend that might make some boy ones.

    Our son gets mistaken for a girl at least 3 times every time we go out. Most of the time I let it slide or politely correct them. But every now and then someone will back chat me about it and I get really annoyed!

    I would get one on those thin black hairbands that go all the way around, Nat Fyfe from the dockers wears one. That'll keep it off his face until it's long enough to tie back.
    As for the comments, I'd just point blank say that's the hair he wants and it's up to him. Blows my mind people feel the need to comment on something like hair that has no bearing on their life at all.

    DS has long hair but I have given few trims to thicken it now we will grow it as he is ASD he doesn't like hair dressers so I'm fine with it!

    Just let him style it

    That's another reason my dad wants me to cut DSs hair - so it grows thicker. I think that's a bit of an old wives tale though. Hair is genetic.
