Children's Faces
« on: 10/06/2009 11:48:17 »
Watching my children and their friends grow up, it seems to me that their facial feature which changes the most is the nose.   Is this an accurate perception and if so is there any known reason for it?

That's a good observation and question.

lets hope a passing nasal/olfactory expert pops in to answer.

interesting.. I would say the opposite... but maybe it has to do with the way cartilage grows...
