    Might sound stupid, but wouldn't calcium and other nutritional consumption alter/change the bone mass/density to cause certain distinct looks?

    I have been classified mostly Brunn but I have a rather weak chin, but maybe this is because I am a female?

    How would you explain the existence of cleft chins in Eastern Europeans, where Brunns typically don't exist in large numbers? Can Alpinids, Nordids, Norids, Dinarids, and Baltids also have cleft chins?

    Some of the individuals in those subraces may have Brunn ancestors, but mostly don't. I've also known quite a few Indians (from India) with classic cleft chins, so it appears to be a trait that might occur frequently in Brunns but is definitely not unique to them.

    No, I've seen plenty of females with strong, cleft chins and it doesn't make them look masculine, neither does having a "weak chin" make a man look feminine, it's just a different look. You probably had fewer ancestors who possessed the dominant gene responsible for the cleft chin, and it's safe to say not all Brunns have cleft chins, you being a good example.
