  1. Is he holding something or is that damage on the pic?

  2. I am having a difficult time deciding whether the Tonkinese gentleman is holding something, or if there is a flaw in this photograph. After magnifying the image, it appears that he is holding the object between his index and middle fingers. The white object does not overlap his fingers the way one would expect if it was a flaw. However, I can not say with any certainty whether we are looking at a held object or damage to the photo.
