Palatal rugae analysis might play a significant role in the fields of dentistry like forensic odontology, prosthodontics and orthodontics as they remain consistent in shape, pattern, direction & unification. The other names used for palatal rugae are plica-palatinae transversae and rugae palatine which are epithelial ridges present on the anterior part of palatal mucosa, present on each side of the median palatal raphae and behind the incisive papilla. AIM: The aim of the study is to draw identification and comparison of different types of rugae pattern in individuals of Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study was carried out on a sample group of 100 individuals, consisting of 50 males and females respectively from Kanpur population. The age group was between 18-30 years. The images of the hard palate reflected in the mirror were visualized using the digital camera and examined by hand held magnifying lens. RESULTS: In our study, we observed that palatal rugae have exceptional attributes and are of distinctive patterns that remain substantial. Palatal rugae in both genders showed wavy type followed by straight, curved and circular type of distribution. CONCLUSION: The study will distinguish variance in distribution of several rugae patterns in non- identical individuals and affirmed that “wavy” and “straight” are the most commonly seen rugae patterns
