Thank you for your query,
Some children may have excessive hair on face in comparison to the other and this depends on their genetic and familial constitution and any exposure to prolonged steroids during pregnancy and childhood.
Child needs the examination to look the extent, review of his history of drugs and family history to know the causes of excessive hair.
So consult your Pediatrician for the examination and to rule out any abnormal causes of excessive hair growth apart from the normal variants.
Hope I have answered your query.
