Some people are born with birthmarks, others aren't. Nobody can develop a birthmark overtime, thus the word BIRTHmark. You get birthmarks from genetics, although some are there because you have a high risk of cancer or another disease, which is why people should get them checked out. You may not see it but after a while, your birthmark will grow and this is not a concern in children.
