: : : Hello

: : : A *brow squint* is a nonmanual signal in sign language.
: : : Is it the same as half closed eyes?

: : : Thank you

: : When you're puzzled, you put on an expression with a furrowed brow. This has the effect of making the eyes narrower. Does this fit the situation?

: Thank you Henry. I'm not sure. In Sign this signal indicates a negation. I just don't understand how can one squint a brow unless he is partly closing his eyes.

Thank you Henry, I found a site where they show a presentation of negation in sign language and it is a narrowing fo one eye.
