    Worth to remind this again. Africans and Amerindians alo have their own eye folds.

    East-Asians have even double fold (Mongoloendoppelfalte on picture). You see also which fold covers eye corner and which not.

    What is the point of your post?

    Anyway, those are examples of several populations, and don't show internal variability in a said population.

    Living in Norway all my life I've honestly only seen it once in a friend of mine and he outright told me he has Sami roots so...

    Its an anecdote so I know it doesn't count for much but I'd say its exceedingly rare among ethnic Norwegians South of Troms. Facial features stand out to me yet I can't remember the last time I saw a Norwegian with epicanthic folds apart from in my friend like 11 years ago.

    It is said that all Caucasoid fetuses have the epicanthal fold, but it disappears in the last few weeks of gestation. I was born four weeks premature, so I did not lose mine. I also have heavy brows, borealization it is called I think; my sister says I look like the Chinese basketball great Yao Ming, although not in height, as at five foot nine I am closer in height to the average Chinese than a giant seven foot tall center. We are 7/8 Northwest European, and my sister-of course the same one, as I have only one-suffered from Dupuytren's contracture, the famed Viking disease, having surgery to repair it in her late 20s.

    That would perhaps be better classified as pseudo-epicanthal folds then.

    Pretty sure all babies period have pseudo-epicanthal folds, so its nothing specific to Caucasoids.
