'Inheritance of Acquired Characteristics'?

Post by Vishwasks2016 » Mon May 14, 2018 1:24 pm

My father had gotten a cut on his eyebrow at the age of 16. It seems I have the same parting of hair due to the cut. But there is no physical mark on the skin. Just hair parted. I have attached a picture of me and my dad.
Does this inheritance come under 'Inheritance of Acquired Characteristics' or 'Transgenerational Epigenetic Inheritance'? I know there is still a huge debate about this topic. Just wanted to know.

I am sorry. I had to delete the picture.
The hair parting looks as if I had gotten a cut on my eyebrow which I didn't.
