At birth the human skeleton is made up of around 300 bones. By adulthood, some bones have fused together to end up with 206 bones.
If broken our bones will re-grow and repair themselves. Often doctors will place a cast on splint to make sure these bones repair straight and true.
Human bones grow continually from birth till our mid 20's. Our skeleton's bone mass is at its maximum density around the age of 30.
