In brief: 1 years

They will get smaller and smaller; by 1 year of age you should no longer be able to find them in most children.

In brief: 1-2 years

The baby's soft spots, or fontanels (one is anterior and a smaller one is posterior), close by about 14 months, but it can be any time between 3 months and two years of age.
