There are some traits that you carry as recessive and depending on who
you breed with, they come out. For example you might have brown eyes but
carry a recessive blue eyed, and your partner has brown eyes and carry
blue eyes, and by chance the kid comes out with blue eyes. Unlikely but
it can happen when the deck of cards (genetic traits) gets shuffled.
And, sometimes it isn't biology but it is culture that influences how we
look. Two people from some exotic island conceive a child that is born
and raised in Nebraska, the kid will look like them in a lot of ways but
the genes might interact with the environment in a different way,
making him, for example, taller, or more inclined to gain weight,
straighter teeth, sharper eyes, etc.
kids are subject to whatever DNA that is in the mother and father.
there is tens of thousands of years of information storied in the DNA.
it is not just the parents info, it is also their parents and then their
parents and so on and so on. the most dominate gene will be the norm to
surface in the child, but more times then not a recessive gene seems to
