I wondered if it might be shadow cast by turned up collar or scarf - only on one side of his jaw.    :-\ :-\

Yes it is. I enlarged it and lightened it and the collar is quite clear.  I think the dark areas are something to do with either the original photo or the scan.

Looks better like that doesn't it.  Hair looks better too.   ;D     Very badly marked photo and difficult to restore.

I'm still on my laptop so I'm restricted in what I can do, but I tried this as a small portrait
