I have an alien toenail named Alien Bob. I have no idea what it is. I broke my toe really bad once and hence lost the nail. All that grows back on the little thing is like a tuff layer of skin and flake like nail stuff. Kinda sad. I want to just lop him off but I have grown close. I can send pictures if anyone wants to see him…...

Thick yellow toenails can happen at any age as a result of onychomycosis.
