Answer: teres major

The scapula ossifies from one primary centre and seven secondary centers.

Paralysis of the serrator anterior causes “winging “of the scapula. The medial border of the bone becomes prominent resulting in the restricted abduction of the arm. The arm cannot be abducted beyond 90 degrees.

Scaphoid scapula is a developmental anomaly where the medial border of the scapula is concave.
