There is a lot of description of Ackley in Chapter 3 of 'The Catcher in the Rye'.
'He was one of these very, very tall, round shouldered guys - he was about six four - with lousy teeth.'
Holden tells us that Ackley had very bad skin -
'...he had lots of pimples...all over his whole face.'
Unsurprisingly for Holden, he can see no redeeming features in Ackley at all-
' And not only that, he had a terrrible personality. He was also sort of a nasty guy.'
