I was born with no collar bones & people are always stunned when I show them my ‘party trick’ | The Sun

WE'VE all got our go-to party trick.

Whether it's balancing a spoon on your nose or a celebrity impression – most of the time they are pretty unique.

But one woman has revealed her go to move and it will push your spoon balancing trick to the back of the queue.

Posting to TikTok, Mum Danielle said she was born with a rare health condition called Cleidocranial Dysplasia.

It's the same illness that Stranger Things star Gaten Matarazzo has and usually affects the teeth and bones, such as the skull, face, spine, collarbones and legs.

Sharing her trick online she said: "When someone asks what I bring to the table…I have no collarbones trick works every time."

She is then able to put her arms out right in front of her and close them together with no space in between – which is where your collarbones would usually get in the way.

People who suffer with the condition may have absent bones and can be more fragile than others who do not have it.

Stranger Things star Matarazzo has had several surgeries for the rare bone disorder.

He plays Dustin in the hit Netflix series and in January 2020 had what he said would hopefully be the 'last surgery he needs'.

He explained his condition to his followers, pointing to some of the side effects that can occur such as underdeveloped cheek bones, short stature and hearing loss.

Another symptom is bad teeth, and Corey added: "Yeah I have bad teeth", adding that he wouldn't be showing them to his followers.

What is Cleidocranial Dysplasia?

Cleidocranial Dysplasia is a condition that primarily affects the development of the bones and teeth.

Individuals with cleidocranial dysplasia usually have underdeveloped or absent collarbones (clavicles). As a result, their shoulders are narrow and sloping, can be brought unusually close together in front of the body, and in some cases the shoulders can be made to meet in the middle of the body.

Affected individuals may be 3 to 6 inches shorter than other members of their family, and may have:

  • short, tapered fingers and broad thumbs;
  • short forearms;
  • flat feet;
  • knock knees; and
  • an abnormal curvature of the spine

Characteristic facial features may include:

  • a wide, short skull (brachycephaly);
  • a prominent forehead;
  • wide-set eyes (hypertelorism);
  • a flat nose
  • small upper jaw

Dental abnormalities seen in cleidocranial dysplasia may include:

  • delayed loss of the primary (baby) teeth;
  • delayed appearance of the secondary (adult) teeth;
  • unusually shaped, peg-like teeth;
  • misalignment of the teeth and jaws (malocclusion); and
  • extra teeth, sometimes accompanied by cysts in the gums

He said: "I started the 'shoulder clapping until I'm famous' one day in my dorm room because I saw people doing different things with a series of days until they're famous – so, boom, there was a good way of making content until I'm famous!"

Corey said that many people with the same condition as him have also reached out after seeing his videos online.

He also said that many people have sent him messages of positivity for raising awareness of the condition, but highlighted that there are some people that still post rude comments.
