Der Ball ist rund ...

Hi there, I'm Mel!

I don't know if I can use "the ball is round" as a direct translation to "der Ball ist rund".
It rather sounds strange to me ... But the ball surely isn't circular either. Maybe I would say something's ball-shaped, but that a ball's ball-shaped is kinda too obvious :-)

Any suggestions?
