The confused face emoji was approved in 2012 under Unicode 6.1 alongside other concerned emoji includingย hushed faceย ๐Ÿ˜ฏ,ย worried faceย ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ, and frowning face with open mouthย ๐Ÿ˜ฆ.

Across platforms, the emoji is fairly uniform with simple dot eyes and a side-frown. Google uses furrowed eyebrows, though, to accentuate the sense of bewilderment and Facebook suggests a cheek scrunched in displeasure,ย as the screenshot from Emojipedia shows below.
