Creases near the earlobes usually are only significant in young infants/children who are suspected of having disorders such as Down's Syndrome which are associated with congenital cardiac defects. It's very unlikely that your husband has such a problem. However, you should consult his physician if you have further questions. Information provided in the heart forum is for general purposes only.
