Upper Lip

| Comments

Yesterday, Benjamin asked me “Daddy, what’s the name of the bumps between my lip and my nose?”

I had to look it up. [It appears to be called the philtrum and/or the paraphiltrum, though many sites differ on whether those terms refer to the whole area, the ridges, the valley, etc.]

Recall that some time ago, he expressed an interest in whether crocodiles have uvulas.

So proud of that kid.
