A 54-year-old female asked:
Is a 7 month old babies soft spot on top of their head noticeable when their hair is wet?

Anterior fontanelle: Should be easy to feel by gently touching with the soft part of the fingertips whether wet or dry. It usually closes at around a year of age, but the timing is quite variable.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
