potato-faced

This is a (brief) description of a guy.

"All skin and bone, potato-faced."

I don't understand what a potato-face could be.
Roundish ? But the character is "all skin and bone". :confused:

    I would take it as referring to pale and unattractive skin of a potatoey colour and/or to a face of a lumpy unattractive sort of shape. The description of someone with a bulging potato-shaped forehead sounds a bit unlikely to me, though I could be wrong.
