Caption: Rolled tongue. 12-year-old boy sticking his tongue out of his mouth, with the sides of his tongue rolled upwards. The ability and type of tongue rolling is determined by genetics. The tongue is a large flexible organ in the mouth. It is used for taste and also aids swallowing. The tongue is also moved in the mouth when talking, producing a range of speech sounds.
