ALBANY, Ga. (CNN/WALB) - A Georgia man learned he was different at a young age when he realized he could touch his shoulders together.
Joshua Carter, of Leesburg, Ga., learned he had a genetic condition known as cleidocranial dysostosis.
With no collarbone, the 22-year-old is able to squeeze into places that few other people can. Carter says one disadvantage of his body build is shopping for clothes, but he says that he's usually able to find what he needs.
"You've just got to roll with it and move on. Because at the end of the day you're really a little cooler than they are," he says.
