The different shapes of the coronoid process were traced on both the right and left sides. The data obtained had put in statistical analysis. Results and Discussion: The triangular square area including the lengths of coronoid process to angle of mandible, angle of mandible to condylar process, and from condylar process to angle of mandible. Is numerically there is a difference between males and females, but statistically there is no significant difference. There are different shapes of coronoid process in males and females. In males, triangular coronoid process was more on the right side about 57.8% than the left side about 54% followed by beak shape and round shape.
