    Hi, they just look a bit crusty. There is some dry discharge. He may have been unwell with cat flu. It might mean his mother is unvaccinated, so he may be under the weather but as it has dried, he may have now recovered.

    Is he yours? He looks very young, and too young to leave his mother as his eyes are still blue.

    His eyes are a bit crusty but it’s not that we are worried about. It is the wierd shape in the middle of his pupils. Loki’s like it is on the lens but not like a cateract

    His eyes need to be cleaned, slightly salted warm water, and vet if it keeps up.

    Pupils can look a bit odd on young kittens, if concerned then see a vet.

    Hopefully your granddaughter is planning on spaying her cat.
    The kittens must stay with mum for at least 12-13 weeks and should be neutered before adoption.

    Do you mean the blue squiggle in both eyes? That is very odd, I have never seen that in any kitten I've had. It sort of looks like a cataract but I'd be beating a door to my vet asap to get it checked.
