The signature of the painting is absolutely anomalous, it is made in black oil and the "m" is joint to the "o", the "o" is closed, the "d" is lonely, the "ig" joint and "liani" joint;
The "g" makes a very cursive curve with a lower body forming an eye, totally unique, "liani" is all together in one unbroken trace, The linearity of the signature is complete in design with a little upper curve in the center; but
of course this does not means nothing, only old fashion art historians/connosieurs would dare to say it's fake based on that stupid and pointless dissertation, a total nonsense.

Signatures in Modigliani have no rules and to say that there are is like saying he signed with a stamp...

The eyes and nose of this painting reflect a style Modigliani used from the end of 1918 to 1919, very similar eye and nose construction can be
seen in many Modigliani works from this period, the line lies under the color and the color degradation is made using color not shadow.

Nose is completely unique, there is no other similar perfect nose all over Modigliani production.

Curiosity:
Marc Restellini extract from a report by him will give a deeper comprehension of the private expert way of working:

Translation:
The ears: When they are left exposed in female portraits (rare), they are not detailed. Even in the portraits of men, they are not the object of so much detail.

------------------------------

Exactly the opposite to this case, the ears are full in details, as detailed as the eyes and even more than the hair

There is no other painting by Modigliani that reflects a boy in the same position, it's unique
