I'm looking for information on what a closed soft spot feels

Customer Question

I'm looking for information on what a closed soft spot feels like. I've noticed a dent on the back of my nine month old's head which feels hard but I'm freakimf out that it's her back soft spot still open and I don't think that's a good thing?

There is no way to tell without examination.

A hard dent, however, is most likely normal.

We all have dents , and a central dent in the back would be typical.

Have the doctor feel this.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
