My father had brown curly hair, blue eyes and my mother has brown wavy hair, brown eyes. Both me and my brother have brown curly hair with blue eyes, with the exception one of his eyes are half blue half brown. For hereditary purposes, fathers parents, blue eyes, mothers parents, brown. Is his eye cause by mutation of a gene or an expression trait (phenotype) masked?
