    Cleft Palate

    It is because the lateral and medial nasal prominences fail to fuse...

    This answer, "because her mom was in a hurry to deliver her so she forgot to close her palate." It makes no sense but it cracked me up. Very funny.

    the above poster said it best. You can have anterior and/or posterior clefts lips as well. This refers to the location relative to the incisive foramen

    Most cases of cleft palate also have cleft lips associated with them

    Most cleft lips are unilateral and are caused by the failure of the maxillary prominence to fuse with the merged medial nasal prominences.
