Mark Hoppus this week shared a throwback photo on Instagram that exposed a dental anomaly from his youth.

The blink-182 singer posted a passport photo from around 1988 – when he was 16 – showing an itty-bitty incisor.

Fans wanted more information.

“What’s up with the baby vampire tooth?,” asked one. Another commented: “Tell me the story behind that broken tooth!”

Hoppus went back into the post to share the whole truth about the half-tooth.

“Edit: to answer your questions, my tooth grew in at a 45° angle and stopped right there,” he explained. “Dentist built a fake tooth around it and it’s been like that ever since.”
