Caption: Baby with a cleft lip and palate held by its grandmother. A cleft lip and palate is a birth defect in which there is a split in the midline of the palate (roof of the mouth) that extends to the upper lip. This is due to failure of the two sides to fuse during embryonic development. Cleft palates and lips can be repaired by surgery. Photographed in Nogales, Sonora, Mexico.
