Cleft lip is considered a birth defect, meaning the defect is present before the baby is born. This type of defect is an opening or split of the upper lip. Some babies with a cleft lip have a small notch in their upper lip. Others have a larger opening or hole that goes all the way to the bottom of their nose. In some cases, a cleft lip can be seen on an ultrasound, an imaging test doctors use to check on the baby during pregnancy.
