How are dimples formed?

Anatomically, dimples may be caused by variations in the structure of the facial muscle known as zygomaticus major. Specifically, the presence of a double or bifid zygomaticus major muscle may explain the formation of cheek dimples.

Dimples are caused by muscles in one's body being shorter than in most people, pulling on the skin and forming the indentation.

Most dimples are actually caused by a birth defect, which just goes to show you that not all "malformations" are actually bad.
