Well, not "growing" but developing. Weird.
New research in biomechanics suggests that young people are developing hornlike spikes at the back of their skulls - bone spurs caused by the forward tilt of the head, which shifts weight from the spine to the muscles at the back of the head, causing bone growth in the connecting tendons and ligaments. The weight transfer that causes the buildup can be compared to the way the skin thickens into a callus as a response to pressure or abrasion.

The result is a hook or hornlike feature jutting out from the skull, just above the neck.

Related news: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-6924069/Smartphones-really-giving-shorter-attention-spans.html

The age of the smartphone has led to a generation of people with shorter attention spans as 'information overload' makes us get bored more quickly, experts say. Rapid access to data - whether in the form of social media or round-the-clock news - is leading to increasingly 'narrow' peaks of collective attention, they warn.

Scientists studied data on social media posts, online searches, book and movie sales as well as academic studies. They found that our collective attention span - as demonstrated by peaks of interest in particular topics online, for example - has decreased over the year. As people are more rapidly made aware of something happening, they tend to lose interest more quickly, experts say.

The findings do not necessarily mean that our individual attention spans have become shorter but this is an avenue for further researcher, they add.

Public discussion can appear to be increasingly fragmented and happen at faster speeds, according to the team of researchers. Sociologists, psychologists and teachers have warned of an emerging crisis of concentration stemming from a 'fear of missing out' (FOMO), keeping up to date on social media, and breaking news coming at us 24/7.

So far, the evidence to support these claims has only been hinted at or has been largely anecdotal. The new study shows that our collective attention span really is narrowing and that the effect occurs not only on social media, but also across a range of topics - including books and web searches.

Our need to keep up to date on a range of subjects is beginning to overwhelm our brain's capacity to focus on multiple items of interest, they suggest.

That is weird,
but at least with a horn on the back of your head, you could always try to hide it with your hair.
Or maybe, after so many centuries a spike growing out of ones skull would eventually look cool?

I am thinking that looking down all the time will lead to premature wrinkly chicken neck Bad Mood
