A steep brow

Geralt of Rivia

He had a softly delineated profile with a steep brow.

What does a brow mean here? Is it 'forehead' or 'eyebrow'? And how can I tell the difference?

    Honestly, I do not know. And that is the exact reason why I'm asking it. Maybe eyebrows? I heard it from somewhere I do not remember.

    I don't know what "steep eyebrows" would look like. "Brow" (singular) usually means "forehead".
