Identical twins

Today my DIL has had twin boys which obviously I'm thrilled with, they are identical but in the photos I can already tell one from the other do they look identical from birth? Forgive me if it sounds like a daft question.

Genetically identical doesn't mean birth size identical. While being squished in utero, sometimes twins will have different shaped heads.
Congrats btw.

awww thank you because of c-section head shapes are lovely it's the noses and shape of their little faces too....maybe after a day or two they may look more similar but as long as they remain healthy I'm happy.
