I can see the coronal sutures on my sons head! He has metopic synostosis and we have an appt on Wednesday with the neurologist, but I was wondering if anyone else could actually see and feel the suture lines on their babies head. I never saw this with my girls.. Pics in post

The skull bones don't grow fully together till after like 2. (I may be wrong on age, but know babys they are not fully fused together)

 yea i think its pretty normal expecially with babies who dont have much hair (no offense) , my oldest didnt have hair for a while either lol.

 My youngest had hair an I could still see hers. I wouldnt stress to much . i can still see it on both my girls if I look for it.

my 3 year old has an abnormally large and somewhat oddly shaped head. You can feel some "bumps" towards the back that I think might also be plate seperation, but it's never really been checked out.
