Even though it’s been more than 20 years since the first Harry Potter book by JK Rowling was released (and 18 since the first film came out), Pottermania has only continued to grow, with hardcore Potterheads constantly coming up with theories over the years.
In a recent tweet shared by Twitter account Today Years Old, claims that the scar on HP’s forehead isn’t a lightning bolt, but is actually linked to the killing curse instead.
Yep, you heard that right, the Avada Kedavra used by You-Know-Who to kill off Harry’s parents.
Take a look:

Some Potterheads were quick to comment, stupefied by this new revelation, wondering how they never noticed the similarity before.

I think even JK Rowling do not know this too

But other fans have been skeptical, quickly dismissing the theory and saying that the similarity in shape is just pure coincidence.
So if this is true, then why is the movement NEVER mentioned elsewhere at any point and time? Also, if this is true, why has nothing been confirmed/denied on it yet by @jk_rowling herself?

Then why is it literally back to front in your picture? Talking nonsense

A little skeptical. In Book 1 we learn that Dumbledore has a curse scar that is a perfect map of the London Underground above his knee. Don’t think any wand movement is as complicated as that

Conspiracy or Coincidence? Let’s just wait for what J.K. has to say about this!
