Your fingerprints fully form when your 24 weeks old ! How much you moved around inside your mom's stomach and how fast you grew determined the pattern of ridges or your fingerprints. Your ridges don't change as you grow.

Fingerprints are used for identifying individuals from their special fingerprint patterns.
They are made up of 2% of oil and 98% water.
The sweat glands in the skin of your finger tips.
They produce a water and oil mixture that covers the ridges of your fingerprint.
These ridges keep a part of this mixture that when the finger touches a surface, a remainder is left behind which is a copy of your fingerprint.
