Perpendicular Plate of the ethmoid bone

We just learned about the Nasal Septum.

Another part of the nose is the Perpendicular plate of the ethmoid bone.

The ethmoid bone is the flat bone between the main part of the skull and where the nose is.
The perpendicular plate is attached to the ethmoid bone, and sticks out forward and splits the nostrils into two sides.
