This six-week-old baby is already a pint-sized punk rocker - as he was born with a natural PERFECT MOHAWK.

Nicolle Green, 41, was stunned when at just a few days old Emerson Blake Nutley's blonde locks stuck up in a natural mohawk, quipping that it looks as though he's been electrocuted.

Since then, the pint-sized punk's locks have gotten even longer but continue to defy gravity and stand up on end in the rebellious style.

Cute photos of Emerson show him sporting the shocking do, and in one snap the banana baby grow-clad tot even appears to strike 'the sign of horns' hand sign - completing his punk persona.

The mass of blonde hair causes his mom to be stopped every time she leaves the house with passers-by flocking around her pram to comment on his striking do.

His mom says that she hopes Emerson Blake will live up to his unusual name and natural rebellious hair by becoming an artist or rock star.

Nicolle, from Lewes, UK, said: "It's just the middle bit on the top of his head that sticks up. It's quite thick at the back, especially around the bottom of his neck.

"It doesn't stick up anywhere else. It looks like he's been electrocuted.

"He looks like an 80s punk rocker with the mohawk. I think if it gets longer we'll be able to do a little ponytail to go with the Mohican.

"I went to a coffee shop recently and as soon as I got him out of the pushchair to feed him everyone came over and said 'oh my gosh look at his hair.'

"It happens on a daily basis when I'm out and about with him. It's constant.

"It's like leaving the house with a really cute puppy. You know how everyone stops you in the street?

"As soon as they peer into the pram they start 'oh what a cute baby' and then you push the hood back and they see the hair and then you have to talk to them about it for ten minutes.

"He gets a lot of attention when we go out, it's almost like going out with a celebrity."

The mom-of-three says Emerson, who was born on June 21st weighing 8lbs 14oz, was born with a full head of hair and after a few days it started sticking up.

Now, regardless of what she does with Emerson's hair, including wetting, washing and brushing it - it sticks up.

But it appears the tiny tot takes after his landscape gardener dad Tom Nutley, 40, who Nicolle describes as 'the other one with the crazy hair,' who also sports spiky locks.

But unlike his hirsute dad, Emerson's hairstyle is au natural.

Nicolle said: "He was born with a full head of hair. It was sticking up within a few days.

"One of the first photos we took of him when we got home, his hair was shorter, but it was sticking up.

"Tom's hair is spiky by design. It doesn't look like that when he wakes up in the morning, he has to put his ten tonnes of gel on it.

"There's no styling involved [with Emerson's]. His hair is like this from first thing in the morning, it never lays flat.

"You brush it down with your hand and it just springs back up again.

"It only lays flat when it's soaking wet, the second he's out of the bath and it sticks up again."

In future, Nicolle hopes that Emerson's personality matches his wild hair.

Nicolle said: "I love his hair, I think it's really, really fun.

"Family and friends love his hair, every photo I put on social media they comment on his hair.

"I wonder when it's going to lay flat, I hope it won't for a while because it's very cute and it suits him.

"I really hope he will grow into his hairstyle and be a bit rebellious. With a name like Emerson Blake I'm thinking rock star, artist, something really cool."
