Is folding your tongue into a clover rare?

Make a clover leaf. The clover leaf builds off the tongue roll. Roll your tongue into a tube. Then, pull the tip of your tongue back. As you pull it back, press the bottom of your tongue against the inside of your lower lip.
What is the genotype for tongue rolling?
A phenotype is a description of what an organism looks like based on its genotype. A person with the Rr genotype for tongue rolling would be able to roll his or her tongue, because he or she has the dominant allele that allows tongue rolling.
Why do we get fissured tongue?
Because a fissured tongue can cluster in families, it may be genetically inherited. Although other causes of fissured tongue are unknown, it may appear along with other conditions such as these: Geographic tongue, also known as benign migratory glossitis (BMG).
How do you split your tongue into two?

Is having dimples dominant or recessive?
Dimples—indentations on the cheeks—tend to occur in families, and this trait is assumed to be inherited. Dimples are usually considered a dominant genetic trait, which means that one copy of the altered gene in each cell is sufficient to cause dimples.
