I remember reading it in a Superman book (novel, not comic book -- no pictures!) It was describing an alien race whose defining feature was the lack of one.
Smooth philtrums are also a symptom of fetal alcohol syndrome. Not everyone who lacks a philtrum has FAS (or is an alien)...but once you know about it it's hard not to wonder when you notice people without one.
You added nothing to that conversation, Barbara.
