Whorls are patterns caused by the laying of hair around a central point. These are unique to individuals and last a lifetime; therefore, they are useful as identifying marks (papers, Coggins test, etc.).
Whorls can occur anywhere on the body but are most common on the face, the neck, the chest, and the flanks.
Some have associated double and triple whorls as signs of superpowers or personalities. I can’t argue but in my experience, I have not seen this.
