Interesting question, I can see why one might wonder this, since a cleft chin may be though of as 'masculine'. I'm a mixed martial artist, and thinking about the anatomy of the cleft chin would tell me the answer is 'no'. The cleft is due to an incomplete formation of fusing the jawbone together, therefore, fighting someone with a cleft chin may even be something to exploit with a nice right hook.

How can you get rid of a cleft dimpled chin?

This may sound a little farfetched, but other than surgery this is probably the only way that you may be able to get rid of a cleft dimpled chin, so please bear with me and don't label this "impossible" or "a load of a garbage" right off the bat. Mien Shang is the ancient Taoist art of face reading. Now, I am not a Taoist and I am a serious skeptic, but you can actually take classes for this in some colleges now, so it may have some validity. What Mein Shang proposes is that are facial features portray our personalities. What the cleft chin stands for is hypersexuality. So, assuming that you have already hit puberty, then what you might want to try is cutting down on how frequently you have sex/masturbate (however, don't totally stop masturbating seeing as masturbating can supposively prevent some forms of cancer.) for a while, and if it doesn't appear that your cleft dimpled chin is beginning to vanish than just go back to how you'd normally live and don't worry about it because Mien Shang is probably a bunch of pseudoscience. Having a cleft dimpled chin is nothing to be ashamed of. Yes, some people find it less attractive than a regular chin, but some find it more attractive. Not many people have cleft chins and therefore it makes you unique. Cleft chins are genetically inherited and there's probably nothing you can do about it, but I suppose the above stated method can't hurt to try.

Is a cleft chin dominant or recessive?

Cleft chin is caused by a recessive gene. You need to have 2 copies of the gene (one from your mom and another from your dad) in order to develop cleft chin.

Read on the related link below.
