Are there different types of cleft lip and palate?
The cleft palate can have a partial or full opening, neither of which affect the outward appearance. The cleft lip can have either one or two splits in the lip. Sometimes babies can be born with both a cleft lip and palate. In these cases, the baby can have a split in one or both lips, as well as in the palate.
