Cute Chin Dimple. Why Some People Have Them and Some Don’t?


Do you have a chin dimple? This distinctive feature could reveal something about your personality!

Cleft chin, butt chin or chin dimple may be inherited from your parents or grandparents. Very few people know how chin dimples actually appear. So what do you know about this trait? You must think there is nothing special about your chin dimple. But maybe it’s there for a reason. Read on if you’d like to know more about this cool feature.

Some people who have chin dimple hate it because they believe it’s unattractive. They look at it as an imperfection. But they are in fact attractive. It’s all about how you choose to see it: you either embrace it or you wish there was a way you got rid of it. But think of all the famous people who have it and who look so good on screen: Sandra Bullock, Russell Crowe, John Travolta (that has to be one of the most popular chin dimple!).

There is nothing to be ashamed of. On the contrary. It’s yours and it makes you you. Besides, people who have it happen to be more noticeable because of it. We all want our faces to be memorable, we want to be easily remembered.

Where Does the Chin Dimple Come From? 

The cleft chin or dimpled chin can be caused by genetics. There is nothing too complicated about the science behind it. Because the mentalis muscle fails to close at the chin, it leaves a gap. That gap is the cute thing we call chin dimple. For you to automatically inherit this cleft chin from your parents or grandparents, the gene has to be dominant and not recessive.

It’s possible that even if you have one, your parents may have never had it. Perhaps some other relative has. Science tells us that it may take up to five generations before this dimple appears in your family. This little thing works quite mysterious ways, isn’t it?

What Does This Dimple Say about Your Personality?

We’re not sure about the science behind it, but first of all chin dimple and chin cleft are not identical. The cleft is more prominent. Some people say that the people who have these are attention-seekers and they’re fun to be around. Some say their nature is playful, entertaining, and powerful.

Although researchers haven’t exactly established a connection between personality traits and this kind of dimple, we think it’s fun to try and look at what these people have in common.
