Twins with boney prominence from their anterior fontanel to the hairline, bangs head at night. Is this normal?

My 16 mth identical twins have a ridge or a boney prominence from their anterior fontanel to the hairline. The prominence is precisely midline. Is this normal. They have normal speech greater than 50 words, average coordination. They have tantrums, interact with little fear of strangers. Eat and sleep is ok but bang heads at night which increased after we continuously gave them attention or tried to stop them.

Hi,

Based on the information your 16 months identical twins have a ridge or a boney prominence from their anterior fontanel to the hairline, and shows tantrums and fear to interacts with stranger, more over bang heads at night and want to know if it was normal.

It is pretty normal for that age kids to behave in such fashion. Nothing to worry as long as the developmental milestones are achieved (for more information about milestone you may ask your pediatrician).

Thanks. Hope it helps.
