because babies are still growing, as in bones hardening and all that so they are stronger, so the head, like above.. moulds into that shape..

i have this bump that sticks out too while alot of my white friends dont.... im asian btw.
so that doesnt matter.
it could also be the way the babies sleep. as u know babies have very soft fragile skulls especially new born so whichever way they lean on their heads could cause pressure on a particular part forming the bulge you saw.

When my son was a baby... I have him sleep on his side and keep switching sides too.. now his head is nice & round.. no flat spots!!! So it really depends on your sleeping position!!!

I was sitting behind an asian and white girl and I noticed something very different about their head shapes. The asian girl has a rround head and its sort of flat in the back but the white girl has a thin head and it stick s out past her neck in the back, I cant explain it but was wondering why is this?
I don't think this applies to all asians but anyone, from what I know after having my two kids, my parents would made my babies sleep on their side so that their head doesn't go flat, my daughter's head is slightly flat but my son is rounded, now that you know where the flat head theory comes from, all starts when we were a baby.

I'm an Asian and, yes, I have a flat spot on the back of my head. I talked to my mother about this many years ago and she gave the answer as many other here have already stated. She also further explained that in Asia, back then, it was from fear of an infant possibly suffocating in their sleep that infants were kept on their backside. Doctors back then, in Asia, recommended this.
Asian doctors do not recommend this any longer and as a result you will notice that younger Asians, whether from geographic Asia or here in the USA, have more rounded skull formations. All of my Asian friends with children have the more aesthetically pleasing round shaped heads.
Roundness or flat spots on one's head is not a racial trait.
Comically, if an infant's head is kept between a wedge he/she could become a true to goodness conehead. Remember, the skull is pliable during a human's infancy.
On another note, have you head of "Asian Fit" for sunglasses now? Cool! Finally making sunglasses to cater to Asian traits! Oakley is doing this and I find it fascinating although I don't care for sport sunglasses.

It's just the way certain people were made. Environment also has something to do with head shape.
