This is from the paper, Final Results! – Determining if the Starchild Skull is Part Alien on the website of its current owner Melanie Young. In the end, the Starchild was a 5-year old Native American boy from northern Mexico with severe health issues.
The Starchild Skull was confirmed to be 100% human.

If they weren't human, would they have said so?
DNA testing in 1999 at BOLD (Bureau of Legal Dentistry), a forensic DNA lab in Vancouver, British Columbia, found standard X and Y chromosomes in two samples taken from the skull. Novella considers this "conclusive evidence" that the child was both male and human, and that both of his parents must have been human in order for each to have contributed one of the human sex chromosomes.
Further DNA testing in 2003 at Trace Genetics, which specializes in extracting DNA from ancient samples, isolated mitochondrial DNA from both recovered skulls. The child belongs to haplogroup C. Since mitochondrial DNA is inherited exclusively from the mother, it makes it possible to trace the offspring's maternal lineage. The DNA test therefore confirmed that the child's mother was a Haplogroup C human female. However, the adult female found with the child belonged to haplogroup A. Both haplotypes are characteristic Native American haplogroups, but the different haplogroup for each skull indicates that the adult female was not the child's mother.

After all, they were always going to say "Yeah, it's not human, and it's an alien species we don't know about" huh?
...there is the practice of reforming the malleable skull of an infant, then there is the lip plates of certain African tribes, and then there is facial piercings of South American tribes.
