In brief: Usually normal

This is a common finding during the second trimester, and they usually disappear by the third trimester. They develop from increased spinal fluid in a fold during development.
If they are associated with other abnormalities, however, it could be a hint to a genetic issue. So, getting a full anatomy survey by ultrasound and talking with a specialist (such as Maternal Fetal Medicine) is recommended
