    its probably a cowlick. i have one on the front and back of my head and its kind of annoying. the hairs kind of grow short and in the opposite direction of the normal hair so its kind of a swirl. i dont know if thats what you mean but i hope i helped. lol when guys have it on the back of their heads i call it a man swirl. :D

    A crown. If you want slang, swirlie, lol. I have two, pretty strange. The girls like it though, haha. Just have nephew blend his hair in haircuts, maybe like 3 all over, scissors on the top so he does not expose it, if that's what you'd like. I hope this was of any help!

    A COWLICK is in the front that makes the hair stand up and curl over and you have difficulty taming it. The hair pattern you are referring to, is called a WHORL. Everyone has it but as you grow and your hair grows, it disappears. but if you were to cut it all off, as it grew back in, itd be there again.

    LMAO! No! i've got not got any that are long sufficient to twirl... i've got continually had to be elegant however... per probability at some point they'll improve long sufficient and that i would be waiting to do it. :P
