All of the bones of the body can be broken down into five types: long, short, flat, irregular, and sesamoid. Long. Long bones are longer than they are wide and are the major bones of the limbs. Short. Short bones are about as long as they are wide and are often cubed or round in shape. Flat.
The bones provide a structural framework and protection to the soft organs. They also provide for the attachment of muscles, and help us move around. The number of bones in the human body at birth is 300.
