It is postulated that craniosynostosis is due to a growth abnormality in all or part of the cranial capsule.

Instagram was forced to apologise after an image of a young child with a facial deformity was removed from its site. Harry Beswick, 12, was born with Goldenhar syndrome, which means he has no left eye, eye socket, nostril or left ear. His mother, Charlie Beswick, who runs a blog and Instagram account for parenting a special needs child, said the social media site decided the picture breached guidelines and was removed.
Charlie Beswick, from England, criticized the platform for removing a photo of her son Harry, 12, who has a facial deformity, after it was reported by another social media user. Harry, who has a twin brother named Oliver, was born with Goldenhar syndrome and has no eye socket or nostril and also has a short jaw. Harry has a prosthetic eye, but when Beswick posted a picture of him without his eye in on Sunday, the picture was taken down two days later. Instagram needs to rectify this discrimination. I see the most beautiful smile, wonderful heart and purest love.
