      Hi 224 heaa29,
      Each individual has different genetic make-up, that is why even siblings from the same parents are all different, and are not identical to their parents. As are all other organs in our bodies , fingers are formed based on our genetic make-up. Fingerprints are easy to identity when we touch objects, that is why they are often used to identify different individuals.
