The state or condition of being brachycephalic; shortness of head.
Short wide head
disproportionate shortness of the head.

Brachycephaly is a type of cephalic disorder. This occurs when the coronal suture fuses prematurely, causing a shortened front-to-back diameter of the skull. The coronal suture is the fibrous joint that unites the frontal bone with the two parietal bones of the skull.
