Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats

for people who love the littlest dairy goats

Hi. My baby buck - 7 weeks old,  I thought was polled, now I'm not sure.  All our other bucks got horns developing in the first week they were born.  This little guy has pretty big, hard mounds and it looks as though there may be some type of horn developing, but I'm not sure.  Anyone have any experience with this?  I can send pics if it would help.

The large hair covered bumps are normal for polled goats. Sometimes they can get polled scurs too which are little horn-like scurs that break through the poll. It's very unlikely that he is horned if he is 7 weeks old and hasn't had horns pop up. Can you take a close up pic of it?
