How old is a baby when their soft spot usually goes away and goes together?

My doctors said that most babies have 2 soft spots, one at the back of their heads and one at the top. The back one is generally closed by 6 months and the top one is generally closed by 2 years. But, those are just general guidelines... every baby is a bit different!

My son is 4 months now and has a small on on the top of his head. They say it can take anywhere from 6-18 months to fully close.

My son has 4 soft spots 1 in the back,1 on each side of his head, and of course 1 on top of his head. The sides and back closed together fully when he was 3 months old but I think his doctor said the one on top (which is huge) will close fully by the time he is 1 or so.
