I don't have a site...I can look for one though in a minute. However, at birth they do not have knee caps! I know that :) because I remember asking my pedi about it.

Upon birth, a baby will not have a conventional knee cap, but a growth formed of cartilage. In human females this turns to a normal bone knee cap by the age of 3, in males the age of 5.
