    Is it a fold or something else?



    Please look at the quadrilateral section.

    Is it a fold or something else?

    I want to write a blog about the vulnerability of paperback books. Such fold-like damage is common.



    Thank you.

    I would say that it's a "crease" resulting from repeated foldind.

    Sorry for the typo, it should have been "folding".

    A 'fold' is quite like a 'crease', except that a fold is often intentional and a crease is usually an accident or mistake! (I can think of one particular use of 'crease' where the mark is intentional; a formally dressed gentleman usually (in the UK) has a crease in his trousers.)
