I recently discovered something that I'm not sure is possible. About a month ago I completely buzzed all my hair off and did it myself without help. About a week ago my mom helped me trim it and made a comment about me never having a double crown before. Meaning I have two circular hair whorls on the crown of my head, causing all sorts of dumb issues pertaining to my hair laying in weird directions. Most people have one whorl and some have two. I guess it's also possible to have more than that but it's rare. The number of whorls and position of them, from what I can gather, is based on genetics and is not something that changes over time.
I used to have only one whorl. My mom is right, I've never had a double crown. I've even buzzed my head before as a teenager and know for a fact I didn't have a double crown then! Thinking back on it the last week I think I started having problems with my hair laying funny on my crown a few years ago, maybe five. But I didn't think anything of it. So in conclusion of that it had to have changed between ages 15 and 23. I have searched and searched and cannot find any answers or similar situations to mine.
Does anyone know if this is technically "possible"? Has anyone ever had this happen to them? I am not asking for advice, just simply if this is possible according to science or has ever happened before.
Currently having the biggest existential panic attack ever. 😅
Edit: I’m going to be here for 4 years
There's no indication that we're reading Wolfe's translation of a manuscript like with New Sun, but that's not reason enough to assume that the people of the Whorl are speaking a different language than the people of Urth. However, upon rereading Long Sun I have reason to believe that the Common Tongue is actually English. In Calde of the Long Sun there are three specific references to spelling and letters.
>Nothing about Bustard had ever been fair, not his being born first though his name began with B and Auk's with A,
>Yet Shell was no younger. They had entered the schola together, and Shell had sat at the desk in front of his own when an instructor insisted on alphabetical seating;
>Silk did not hear Sand's reply; he was thinking about a great many things. Among them, names. His own and Sand's were similar-each had four letters, each contained a single vowel, and each began with an S.
I didn't notice any more in Exodus and I could not recall any from the first two, though I wasn't really looking for them at that point. If this really only occurs in Calde then it's all the more suspicious.

If this is not the right forum to ask, please help me know where I can find out.
Why do I have different thumbprints? Does anyone know if it has a medical name? I want to investigate more and know.
This is something that still nags at me from high school, about 15 years later. I thought this would be a good place to ask
I had a class where my teacher was talking about fingerprints, and said whorl types repeat on all fingers. So if you have arches, you should have arches on all of your fingers Etc.
I have spiral on all of my fingers except pinkies. My pinkies are loops. Teacher didn't believe me, joked that I thought I was a mutant or something and never humored looking at my fingerprints.
So what's going on here? I suspect my teacher was just wrong and this is fairly common, but I couldnt find any information about this the few times I've Googled it.
so yeah. ive tried growing it out, but like the whorls in the back make it hella poofy when long and combed back and down—I did a middle part with it but it wasnt a natural parting so it would get messed up easily. I then cut it shorter but still enough length at top to comb over to the right. but then the whorls would make the back stick up while i had a flatter front. I also got a fat forehead (not tall, but my hairline goes back pretty far) so that doesn’t help if i style it short and up. also when the front gets long, no matter how i style it up and back, it always falls down. i just cant find the right style what should i do?
