Best Answer

All cranial bones are joined by sutures with some bones having Sharpey's fibres giving a degree of flexability to some joints but even these joints are still sutures. The part of the skull that is not sutured is the mandible (the jaw) but then this structure is not actually a part of the cranium. The cranium is the portion of the skull that contains the brain.
