Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The human skull was originally composed of several bone joints, namely 2 frontal bones, 2 months parietal bones, 2 temporalis bones, and 1 occipital bone.
When you are just born, the bones that make up the skull are not fused. This is useful for facilitating the delivery process to be carried out normally per vagina. Because, during childbirth, the joints between these bones can be folded together so as to reduce the diameter of the head so that the head can come out through the narrow vaginal opening.
As a result of this folding between the bones, often, in newborns, a prominent line will appear between the joints of the bones, including on the front of the head to the forehead. As the baby gets older, these bony protrusions will fade by themselves due to the stretching of the increased brain volume. This was accompanied by the hardening of the joints between the bones into a complete skull structure. Usually, this process will end at 18 to 27 months of age (average 24 months).
As long as there are no other complaints that accompany, it is likely that your child's condition is not dangerous. However, if you are in doubt, or have complaints such as vomiting, fussy babies, developmental disorders, and so on, it is highly recommended for you to have your child checked directly to the doctor so that further evaluation can be done. If deemed necessary, doctors can also perform supporting tests, such as X-rays, CT scans, MRI, and so on.
Hope it helps ..
