In an anatomical anomaly this man has been blessed with a thumb that measures five inches long.

College student, Jacob Pina from West Port, Massachusetts, has been having fun on social media in sharing his lengthy thumb.

The 20-year-old has no idea why his thumb is largely to of proportion with the rest of his hand but he has embraced and love showing it off.

In one of his clips he remarks that he has never lost a thumb war, which is hard to dispute.

Jacob said: “There is no reason, it’s so big just an anomaly.

“When people see my thumb, they freak out and measure it next to their own thumb, I feel great about it.

“It’s always great to be different and embrace your own essence.”
