Here's a comparision of the disciple John with other pictures of young males made by Leonardo or at least after him to make clear what I meant:

(#2 is the Angel Incarnate - supposedly with Salai's look, #3 is maybe a work by one of Leonardo's students and is said to be a portrait of Salai and then we have him some years older as St. John the Baptist, #5 is even attributed to Salai as a copy after the painting by his master)
