In brief: Genetics vary

There are different types of ectodermal dysplasia.
Some are x-linked recessive and some are autosomal dominant. So depending on which parent has the condition, children could be free from the condition, be carriers, or have the disease. This would depend on the type of ectodermal dysplasia that the parent has.
