3334 Photo Identification

3/9/2005 Shmuel Dovid Klein, ca. 1900, Kishinev, Bessarabia. Would someone be able to identify the name (in Russian, English, Yiddish, and/or Hebrew) and significance of the particularly style of yarmulke he is wearing? Or is this standard-issue headgear for this time and place? Although this is an ethnographic query, I would of course be glad to hear from anyone who recognizes the face in the picture.
