The Sizzle Query: Chin Up

Per an obligatory scientific explanation, cleft chins are defined as: “a Y-shaped fissure on the chin with an underlying bony peculiarity. The chin fissure follows the fissure in the lower jaw bone resulted from the incomplete fusion of the left and right halves of the jaw bone, or muscle, during the embryonal and fetal development.”
Footballers (and some managers) are pretty much genetic marvels by nature, so it’s not all too surprising to see several of them sport this ‘peculiarity’.
Kickettes, do you find cleft chins to be cute or cringeworthy? And which is worse in your humble opinions: a cleft chin or a double chin?
