The concept that family resemblance might offer a basis for the prediction of facial growth is examined. The present results support the view that a number of cranio-facial features are under polygenic control but this is not relevant to the prediction of facial growth. If family resemblance is to be used for prediction it must be shown that, with growth, a child becomes more like its parents in the relevant features. The results of the present study indicate that this is not the case.
