At the junction of coronal, sagittal and frontal sutures, the anterior fontanelle is located which is open at birth and usually fuses at around 18-24 months after birth. The junction of the coronal and sagittal sutures after fontanelle closure is known as the bregma.
At the junction of sagittal and lambdoid suture, the posterior fontanelle is located which is open at birth and usually fuses at around 2-3 months after birth. The junction of the sagittal and lambdoid sutures after fontanelle closure is known as the lambda.
premature fusion of the sagittal suture results in scaphocephaly
normal fusion of the sagittal suture occurs at approximately 22 years of age
