Some geese have rounder heads than others. In my opinion, females who have a rounder head look better than ones with squarer heads. There are many variations and how their head is shaped is one of the most distinctive characteristics for distinguishing individuals. This trait will have to be decided to one's own opinion because of all the variation.
The way their head goes to the knob for a gander is one of the most important things for me when I am breeding for specific traits. Some ganders' heads go up towards their knobs while others stay the same. Redbud who is up at the very beginning of the post is an example of a gander whose knob stays about the same. Cherry shown below has a head that goes up to the knob.
The females have their own various head shapes! Some females will have heads that are definitely rounded while others you cannot not ascertain easily and yet others are definitely square heads. At certain angles a square head will look like a round head and the same vice versa. Sassafras was one of my best examples of a goose with a squared head but at times she did not really seem to have that head shape.
All these details make an individual goose so special! The head shape, knob shape, eye color, voice, beak length, whether the goose has a bit of orange and/or white on the beak, the coloring, neck, size, bulk, body shape, the back feathers, the underside of the wing, the tail, the personality, and even what the shape of a goose's egg is matters!

I have twenty-eight geese. I hatch a bunch of goslings because I want a lot of people to have geese. I do not see them everywhere but I want to! The goslings are the sweetest baby birds I know! The adult males are proud and can be cranky but have their sweet moments while the females are shy and sweet all at the same time.
