Dear 100 Hour Board,

What causes that swell cleft in one's chin like Gaston?


A: Dear Le

Ah, the magical wonderment of Wikipedia:<Quote>The groove of the cleft chin is not just skin-deep, but also on the jawbone, as a groove in the vertical midline of symphysis menti and the soft tissue above it. It is probably the result of incomplete fusion between the left and right halves of the lower jaw during embryologic development.Though, oddly, that information was in the dimple article, the cleft chin article simply says its genetic, which isn't terribly helpful.
