In brief: Capillary bundle
Ch are spaghetti like collections of bundled capillaries in a common birth mark.
They will generally grow faster than the kid for about 6-8 m, slow then start to shrink down into the skin leaving a pale or parchment like surface by the age of 4.Rarely do they need any work. If they might interfere with vision of distort the nose some dermatologists might treat to decrease size.

Hemangiomas are benign vascular tumors of infancy that often are not present at birth, but show up during the first few weeks of life. While most remain relatively small or flat, those that grow aggressively, or particularly those on the head and neck, should be evaluated early on by a birthmark specialist.
