This condition is called Polydactyly, and occurs in about one in every 2,000 births. As a mother, I immediately thought it could be a drawback in buying gloves (mittens will be OK). However, this child would be possiblu gifted on a piano or as a Flamenco guitarist... and aren't there Chinese instruments that require a 12-note scale?
I don't know what it would do to his typing skills, but one thing's for sure.
He could get quite confused learning mathematics. How about the extra two piggies in "THIS LITTLE PIGGIE WENT TO MARKET"? Also, When he gets married, which is his ring finger?
Congratulations to the new baby boy and the happy couple. Please check out the link for an amazing story.
