grimace (noun) twisting and turning of face to show dislike, or in pain.

You make a grimace when you twist your face to show your dislike for somebody or something, or as an expression of your pain and suffering. Children usually make grimaces at their teachers, elders, or classmates, to show their disgust or dislike. We give a grimace when we are in pain or experience suffering. That is, we twist our face and mouth in all kinds of shapes.
