An alien survivor from a prehistoric saucer crash? An unfortunate time traveler from the future? A tradesman from a parallel universe? A hitherto undiscovered species? Or a mere freak deformity of a human being? Nobody knows for sure, but no matter the explanation, the Sealand Skull has potential to change the view of the world we live in.

Is that pic you posted a cast of the skull or the actual skull itself? Because if its the actual skull itself I am dubious, due to the seams and stuff that are visible. However if its just a cast (I suspect it is, you never display the original itself) then thats fine and the seams make sense.

However even if it's not fake there are people alive right this minute that have very strange skull shapes through physical deformity caused by genetic disorders like progeria.
the biggest give away is the teeth. they meet the skull in a straight line, and most of them are joined together, not seperate
The Sealand Skull is about one and a half times larger than a male Homo sapiens cranium. Especially the eye sockets contribute to its size. Its smooth surface reveals that the creature was adapted to cold climate, and its relative eye size that it was either a night creature, lived underground or on a planet orbiting a remote or dim star, probably an orange or red dwarf. It is noted that the star 51 Pegasi in the Pegasus constellation was the first Sun-like star known to have a planet. Planets orbiting the Pegasus star HR 8799 were the first to be directly imaged, and spectroscopic analysis of HD 209458 b, another planet in the constellation, has provided the first evidence of atmospheric water vapor beyond our solar system.
