The paper reports data on cleft chin in 900 individuals from Kerala. The results of all surveys in India in which the cleft chin was observed have been tabulated. Gene frequency analysis has been attempted. Wide variations in gene frequencies were found for the gene cl. The major racial groups in India tend to follow definite trends. The trait varies from dimples to furrows, and is independent of age but reveals sex differences. A plea is made to collect more family, twin and population data.
