Sometimes something just is what it is with no benefit or handicap either way.
When I was a kid I could wiggle my ears. In my mid-teens I completely lost the ability to do that. I don't know how. It just went away. Maybe it's because while it's cute as a kid, it's weird as an adult and would make me look less attractive to the opposite sex and hinder my ability to mate?
Or maybe as I grew the muscles that controlled it just changed for no reason.
