Fingerprints are formed semi-randomly as the foetus develops in the womb and are affected by such things as chance fluctuations of hormone levels. Similarly, the pattern of freckles and moles on the skin is caused by random mutations and will vary between identical twins.
Identical twins are 'clones' of one another. Their fingerprints are similar but not identical. ... Fingerprints form patterns the same way frost on a window forms patterns -- due to physical forces and conditions, not due to DNA programming.
Yes, clones have fingerprints. No, they wouldn't be exactly like their original: fingerprints are influenced by in-utero and epigenetic factors, not just by the DNA. A clone's fingerprints would be very much alike its progenitor (and some features would be nearly identical), but not the same.
