Skull: Superior View

In the superior view, the skull appears to be quite simple in structure. The only important features on the superior view of skull are:

Coronal suture:

It is formed where the frontal bone articulates with the two parietal bones. Occasionally, the two halves of the frontal bone fail to fuse, leaving a midline metopic suture.

Sagittal suture:

It is formed where the two parietal bones articulate with each other in the midline.
