Hi, allow me to provide some insight. Our original family name was koo, my fathers name was hoq-lin koo mo shan whilst my mother was mainly indian with some tibetan. He was born near hong kong but his family always maintained the stance that based on their physical features they weren't originally chinese other than that they refused to talk about their background. And even then we only presume they're from the south, As per the pictures they had sharper features, taller than the average southerner, single eyelids.Our names aren't monosyllabic like chinese. My personal name is ko-lan koo. We also have been born with a blue spot on our behinds which according to our korean friends only appears on them and mongolians. Adding on from that when we go to places with large chinese populations such as chinatown they tend to think we're not chinese and indeed once we were greeted in korean.There are some unusual cultural practices which may or not be chinese such as a religious ceremony with a bowl once a year(?)
Thanks in advance,
I enclose these photos

Well Chinese is an ethnic group, so whatever your original geographic origin, you're culturally Chinese now. Your ancestors could've come from Mongolia, Northern China, Manchurian, Western China or somewhere, but many of those people have assimilated or been absorbed now. To me those people mainly look just Chinese. I suppose they could be Mongolian possibly Korean, not really Japanese looking.

This is very untrue.

In Sichuan, China there is a term 青钩子娃娃, which means "very young kids with blue butts".

Sichuan is in southwest China, far from Korea or Mongolia.

Mongolian spot - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

According to this it's actually common in many peoples, within and outside of Asia.
