According to a semi-canon source, Grey Worm has absolutely no facial hair, though the hair atop his head is short and brown. He is stocky, of medium height and square. He has a serious looking face, on the edge of solemn. The Unsullied do not display much emotion. He is young, in his late twenties or so.
A Storm of Swords
Grey Worm is chosen by his fellow Unsullied as the most able among them to become an officer. He is placed under the tutelage of Ser Jorah Mormont to learn how to command. When Daenerys Targaryen abolishes the Unsullied tradition of being given new names every day, Grey Worm chooses to keep the Unsullied name he had when he was freed.
Grey Worm is among those present during planning for the siege of Meereen, Daario Naharis states that the Unsullied could take down the gates with axes since they consider boiling oil to be no more than a warm bath. Grey Worm responds that this is false; although Unsullied would not feel burns like men do, but the oil, would blind and kill, but give the Unsullied a ram they would batter down the gate or die. Daenerys tells Grey Worm she will not throw away Unsullied lives. Later there is a plan presented to invade the city through the sewers; Daenerys includes the Unsullied as those she does not believe are appropriate for invading through the sewers.
A Dance with Dragons
Daenerys has Grey Worm order her Unsullied to travel in pairs when the Sons of the Harpy begin killing her soldiers. When Daenerys disappears on Drogon's back, Hizdahr zo Loraq attempts to order the Unsullied but Grey Worm and his men refuse to obey him. However when Ser Barristan Selmy goes to Grey Worm for his help in seizing control of Meereen, Grey Worm agrees to aid Selmy. Grey Worm becomes a member of the ruling council of Meereen.
It is a lucky name. The name this one was born to was accursed. That was the name he had when he was taken for a slave. But Grey Worm is the name this one drew the day Daenerys Stormborn set him free.—Grey Worm to Daenerys Targaryen

I have no plans for Grey Worm's race or personal history to become important at this time, though I do reserve the right to change my mind. Sometimes the muse plays strange tricks on me.
