Ok this is a dumb question. In science fiction when a person gets cloned his/her clone's fingerprints almost always match the originals fingerprints. Would that really be the case? Identical twins don't have matching fingerprints right? So a clone and the original shouldn't have matching fingerprints right?

Fingerprints are determined by DNA and the environment. So in theory, clones would have the same DNA, but not the same environment.

Identical twins don't have matching fingerprints.

Correct.

So you need to come up with a reliable alibi, and not just blame your twin. \:\)
