Not typically. They look mostly human but taller on average and occasionally with a few angelic traits like opalescent eyes, silver hair, patches of feathers that grow on their shoulders, a halo of faint light around their heads, etc.

Legend
It is implied that Aasimar are indistinguishable from a human at first glance, but when their abilities are used their appearance changes. However, this is not explicit, and some DMs have decided that they have distinguishing features. Matt Mercer has some Aasimar be obviously angelic and others only reveal their nature when their wings come out (2 kids from first campaign were obvious, Reani was obvious, Yasha not so obvious).

That’s not just a thing some DMs have decided, it’s pretty well-established ever since Planescape.

I'm currently playing an aasimar who is lion headed with a mane of white, iridescent fur.

If you consider that aasimar are humans with some connection or blood of celestials, they could look very different. Have you ever seen the depictions of angels based on their descriptions in the Bible? They can be terrifying.
 

Just make sure you check your spelling...you don't want to end up running an "assimar" PC, after all!

You can really have fun with how they might like when you realise under D&D definitions, many of the Greek heroes might be called "aasimar", like Hercules or Persues, etc. Or even, perhaps, Egyptian royalty (being the "sons of Ra")

Oh wait, I know the best Aasimar example!
