App Has Period?

I have never seen anything like this. When I add a child record to my main form, the Birthdate field loads with a period in the input box. I have no idea how this is happening. Has anyone in this community seen anything like this? What could be causing it? I promise this is NOT a spoof or joke.

HTML
<input name="Birthdate" class="form-control input-sm" data-bind="attr:{'id': 'Birthdate_' + $index()}, value: Birthdate, date: Birthdate, format: 'MM DD YYYY', event: {change: flagIndividualsAsEdited}" placeholder="Birthdate"/>
                        </td>

Open in new window


JS function adding child viewModel and defaults.
        self.addFamilyMember = function() {
            var individuals = new IndividualsViewModel({ Id: -1, FirstName: "", MiddleName: "", LastName: "", Gender: "", PhoneNumber: "0000000000", Email: "", Birthdate: "", AdultBirthdateDecline: 0, Ethnicity: "", USTANumber: "", FamilyRole: "", RelationshipType: "", ObjectState: ObjectState.Added });
            self.Individuals.push(individuals);
        },

Open in new window

That's not a period...that's a hyphen.  It looks like you are using a library to enforce a particular formatting on the value of that input box (date formatting, probably).  The hyphen could be an artifact of the library trying to format a NULL value into a date.  Or perhaps the library properly detects the NULL value, and purposefully inserts the hyphen to signify it.

In any case, you'll need to look through the library manipulating that input.

That was it. It was this part code that formats the date:
       var value = valueAccessor();
            var pattern = allBindings.format || "MM/DD/YYYY";
            var valueUnwrapped = ko.utils.unwrapObservable(value);

            var output = "-";
            if (valueUnwrapped !== null && valueUnwrapped !== undefined && valueUnwrapped.length > 0) {
                output = moment(valueUnwrapped).format(pattern);
            }
            if ($(element).is("input") === true) {

                $(element).val(output);
            } else {
                $(element).text(output);
            }
