How is A Fingerprint Formed?

Fingerprints are ridge-like patterns that are present on our fingers, toes, palm and feet. These are unique patterns and are completely different even among identical twins. They are formed in the mother’s womb and are determined by several factors such as flow of amniotic fluid, genetic makeup, length of the umbilical cord, and the position of the foetus in the womb. The cells in the innermost layer of the epidermis grow rapidly due to which the layer folds and forms various patterns.
