This should help explain how the sutures work and which is which
Craniosynostosis is a medical word that means that one or more of the sutures of an infant's head have closed early (synostosis is the union of two or more bones to form a single bone). The sutures are the spaces between the bones that make up the skull. These sutures have each been given a name. See the picture below. Each of the skull bones also has a name and the fontanelles which are labelled on the diagram are known commonly as 'soft spots'.
I cant tell you if your sweetie will need an operation or not, The nuero will do that.
Try not to stress too much, almost all cranio babies have a wonderful outcome, they make it through operation just fine and recover amazingly fast.
I do know how you are feeling though, its scary and just a downright awful feeling.
As i said i am here if you need anything at all
