Supraorbital brow ridge.

Postby Structutr » Wed Dec 18, 2013 4:11 pm

Tell me all about it. Everytime I see this, I'm highly intruiged.

First of all, I notice the brow ridge is present in most Americans, whereas where I live, it's pretty rare (France).

Many sources seem to state this forehead protrusion as an indicator of high testosterone during teen years. Yet, it seems to be inheritable too.

Do we have any informations on this? I used to think the brow ridge came with a large bone structure and a wide, thick jaw, but it actually doesn't. It seems to be more of a random things.

If you guys have anything regarding this matter, I'd be glad to know it.
