Is there any history of craniofacial disorders on either side of the family at all? A genetecist would be the best person to tell you, they look the baby over head to toe and see things you or I might not ever notice. Syndromes typically involve more than one suture, but not always, and some syndromes also have abnormalities of the hands and or feet. Hope you get some answers soon :hugg
No real diagnosis has ever been made, but on my husbands side they have had someone with extra fingers before.

Polydactyly (extra digits) can run in families so it doesn't necessarily mean a craniofacial syndrome if it occurs with synostosis. My mum, daughter and I all have mild webbing to the same toes on the same foot, but the geneticist says that my daughter's cranio is entirely unrelated and she is not syndromic.
Have made an apointment with a gentecist for next week monday. Will advise on the outcome.
Thanks for all the help.
