Baby's fingerprints

"What makes dermatoglyphics [the ridge patterns of skin on the inner surface of the hands and feet] important as markers for disease and traits is the fact that they develop at specific times in the foetus. Fingerprints, for example, begin to form at around the 13th week and are completed around week 18 - the same time that critical growth in the brain is taking place."
