The coronal suture is located on the side of the skull and extends from the soft spot to an area just in front of the ear.

Metopic Suture Craniosynostosis

This midline suture is located in the middle of the forehead and extends from the soft spot to the root of the nose.

Sagittal Suture Synostosis

The sagittal suture is located on the midline, on top of the skull and extends from the soft spot towards the back of the head.
