Who has dimples? If not, what do you think of them?

I have one dimple on the cheek of the left side of my face. I always wanted to know as a child where they come from... They are not always hereditary either. My grandma has the too on one side of her face as well.

If you have dimples, do they only show when you smile? is it on your cheek or chin?

how do you think dimples form?

  • I love dimples.  Unfortunately I don't have any but my husband does (in his cheeks) and both my daughters do too.

  • I never thought I had dimples..but apparently I do..I've never noticed them, but it's hard to when you can't see yourself..never seen them in pictures of myself or in the mirror though..

    Anyway, each of my sons has one dimple, on opposite cheeks. I love it! They are adorable. My 3 week old son has a dimple that shows whenever he has gas. My older son's dimple only shows up when he smiles a certain way. It's grown more visible as he's grown older.

  • My son has dimples in his cheeks, one on each side, and they are ADORABLE! they show when he smiles, and people always comment on how cute he is! I love dimples, but neither me or my husband have them. Dimples are inherited, always. Or you can get plastic surgery.

    here's a genetics page that explains about inherited traits and dimples:

  • Dimples are actually a deformity. The muscles in the cheeks aren't as long as they should be. It creates a space, and thus a dimple. I do not have dimples, but I've always wanted them. I think they're adorable! And you can actually get dimples surgically now. LOL

  • I have dimples in both my cheeks and my chin. My son has them in both his cheeks, they are adorable on him. I don't think about them much on me.
