THIS man has a condition called cutis verticis gyrata. NBC News says:

In this week’s New England Journal of Medicine, two Brazilian doctors describe this young man’s case and share a picture of its odd appearance. When he was 19, the skin on his scalp started to change. It grew thicker, forming many soft, spongy ridges and narrow ruts.

Even his hair had an unusual configuration. It was normal in the furrows but sparser over the folds as is common for this strange scalp condition. No doubt, visits to the barber shop as well as washing his squishy scalp and combing his hair were peculiar experiences.

Meanwhile…. in Japan, a man has cut out the photo and is on his way to the hairdressers…
