  • The posterior fontanelle is usually smaller and closes up by about 4 months of age. The anterior fontanelle is usually bigger, starts getting smaller around 6 months, and doesn’t close up until 9-18 months of age (by 2 years at the latest).

  • Different children close at different times....My son's was almost completely closed at 6 months old, more commonly it is between 1 and 2 though
