So cleft lips and palates are both a failure of closure of the shelves that occurred during fetal growth. The type of failure of closure can be one side, it can be both sides, it can be halfway through, all the way through, and it can also just be areas that are thin, so they’re completely incomplete, meaning you could have skin closed, but the muscle doesn’t close. So there are varying forms of cleft lip and cleft palate, and they are all treated differently and they all cause different problems.
