It is rare but some babies are born with an extra finger. Often times this finger is next to their pinky finger or even attached to it. Sometimes the extra finger has bone in it but it often doesn't Doctor can usually remove the extra finger and a simple procedure. It is painful but I have read that it has a very quick recovery. Most children will look and function normally once the extra finger is removed.
