Warts on the skin grow in cylindrical projections and often these projections fuse together to give the wart a flat surface. Warts that grow in certain areas and in thin skin have the cylindrical projections but they don't fuse. In this picture of a wart on the scalp you can see numerous projections from the tiny ones at the base to the large ones on top.
