Based on a picture taken of Twitch.tv streamer called Cadburry (real name unknown). 4Head is one of the original emotes created for the streaming website Twitch.tv.
The emote features Cadburry with a wide open smile on his face. The emote can be used to react to a joke or a situation in two ways: either an honest reaction to it being funny or sarcastic.
The emote has spawned a variant for the UK audience on Twitch.tv, called 3head, which is basically the same picture, but with Cadburry missing one tooth on the front, making the emote look quite chavy.
The first use of the emote is unknown, but the earliest claim of it being used/added on Twitch.tv is 2015.
The original picture was taken by Cadburry of himself, which was somehow turned into an emote that has made its way to the website.
Unfortunately, there are no details on the background available on the internet.
