When 4-month-old Jonas Gutierrez was forced to wear a helmet after being diagnosed with a rare condition.

His family didn’t want him to feel any different, so they came up with the sweetest way to show their solidarity – they all decided to wear helmets too!

Otherwise known Plagiocephaly, flat head syndrome occurs when the skull plates fuse incorrectly.

“He had an oversized head in the womb, and…he sleeps on that one spot,” said Jonas’s father

“He was constantly sleeping on it so it just kept getting worse”

Because of this, Doctors fitted Jonas with a helmet to reshape his head, something he’ll have to wear from three to six months.

His 3-year-old sister decided to wear her bike helmet in solidarity, so the rest of the family joined in!

They went viral after a cousin shared a picture of them on Twitter.

It didn’t take long for people’s hearts to melt.
