Qualification: I’m a police officer and my wife is a scenes of crime officer and fingerprint expert!
Answer: Fingerprints form in the womb at 22 weeks and after that, all they will do is expand as you grow. Therefore, it is possible that a fingerprint 22 weeks after conception could be used to identify a 50-year-old criminal.
