A nose that is too large in comparison with the size of the head and the other facial features
Less frequently, a nose that is too small in relations to the rest of the face
A bump or hump on the bridge of the nose (the bone that runs down the top of the nose)
A line or dent in the bridge of the nose
A rounded or bulbous tip to the nose
A nose that is crooked or bent
A nose otherwise misshapen or out of proportion
