It could have been from surgery. I have a friend who had skin taken from her tummy for a breast reconstruction and she wouldn't have had a belly button but the dr. made her a new one so it wouldn't look too weird.

I looked it up. Apparently he did have some sort of surgery and it left him without a bellybutton. So he was born with one, and he was not an alien or anything.
