While some children end up being spitting images of one of their parents, others look like a mix of both. Either way, it’s fascinating to compare images of family members side by side, and some of them might leave us more mind-blown than we expected.

Most people have 12 pairs of rib bones, which means 24 ribs in total. But, some have 25. One in 200 people is born with the so-called cervical rib. It forms right above the first rib and grows at the base of a person’s neck, above the collarbone. A cervical rib can be located on the left, right, or both sides. You can have it without even knowing about it. This extra rib doesn’t necessarily form completely. It can be just a thin strand of tissue fibers not even an X-ray can see. In most cases, it’s really not a big deal — unless it starts putting pressure on nerves and blood vessels.
