Some parietomastoid sutures bifurcate into two branches before they join the squamosal sutures. Therefore, we defined the junction of the squamosal suture with the extension line of the main stem of the parietomastoid suture as the SP [Figure 4].{Figure 4}
On the 80 skull sides, 11 (13.8%) parietomastoid sutures bifurcated into two branches before they joined to the squamosal sutures.
First, about 14% of the parietomastoid sutures separated into two branches before concatenating squamosal sutures, leading to an uncertainty of confirming the definite SP.
