Harry Potter is the most famous fandom than any other else as it is full of mysteries, story, and friendship. It was written and published between 1997-2007. The series is distributed by Warner Bros. and consists of eight fantasy films. And it is full of mysteries but some remained unsolved.

1 Dumbledore's Scar
In the very first book, Dumbledore tells Hagrid and McGonagall that he has a scar on his left knee that is a perfect map of the London Underground and that scars can be useful—how so, Albus? Do you think he’s just going to strip in the middle of a chase scene in the Underground in the next Fantastic Beasts movie? Maybe that’s when he decides to switch to velvet robes instead of those smart suits.
I asked a while back on Twitter why Quirrell’s students thought the turban smelled like it was stuffed with garlic when it was actually stuffed with Voldemort’s face. One suggestion was that it was just the stench of evil. It’s hard to brush teeth on the back of your head, someone else said.
Some people who are better at math than me figured out that, given the price of the materials (unicorn hair, phoenix tail feather, etc.) that go into each wand, Ollivander probably sells them at a loss. Even so, wands are among the most pricey of school supplies. However, since wizards get worse results when using someone else’s wand, it does not seem to me to be the best area to economize when buying school supplies for your eleven-year-old. I understand why Ron ended up with Charlie’s old wand given how many Weasley children there are, but Neville, who presumably had at least some money left to him by his parents, also used his father’s old wand for the first five books and that didn’t always go well for him. The poor kid already had the cards stacked against him, why not get him his own wand?
Does Professor McGonagall just order, say, a bunch of umbrella birds to be turned into umbrellas? What happens to them after class? Do they just hang out as umbrellas until the next time they’re needed? You don’t have to feed or clean up after umbrellas. (I know, let it go. It’s magic.)
We know that Nick and his fellow ghosts miss being able to taste the food, even though they no longer have to eat. Nick obviously couldn’t have taken the potion that was used on the Petrified students. Was the Mandrake Draught just sprayed in his general direction?
Mad-Eye’s magical eye brings up so many questions because it can seemingly see anything. Mad-Eye is able to see a boggart in number twelve, Grimmauld Place in Order of the Phoenix, so does that mean he’s seen the boggart before it transforms? What does that look like? Also, Mad-Eye somehow manages to see Harry under the Invisibility Cloak – the same cloak, not even Death can see?! If this is the case, Mad-Eye had some serious power in that eye. No wonder Umbridge stole it!
Since J.K. Rowling never really elaborated on the wizarding postal system, all we know is that owls are treated as pets and are used to carry letters. But how do they reach the intended recipient? How are the letters screened for Dark magic and curses? How did Dobby intercept Harry’s letters in Chamber of Secrets? We know that other birds can be used to deliver post because Sirius uses large tropical birds when he’s in hiding, so what other animals can deliver post? Are they trained differently than the owls? We might be overthinking it, but we also wouldn’t mind a novel-length explanation of wizarding mail!
It’s never explained how Dumbledore came to keep Fawkes – could it have something to do with the fact that Fawkes’ feather is in Voldemort’s wand? A popular theory is that the two were introduced by everyone’s favorite Magizoologist, Newt Scamander. Maybe we’ll see this happen in the sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
All we know about the magical ship used by the Durmstrang students in Goblet of Fire is that it rises out of the depths of the lake with all its students on board. But how did it get in the lake? Does the ship have the power to Apparate or magically move between bodies of water? Yet another magical object that seems simple but provokes deeper thought once you consider the established forms of transportation in the wizarding world.
This is the sort of question that requires a close examination of every minute detail in the books. J.K. Rowling dedicated Prisoner of Azkaban to Jill Prewett and Aine Kiely, whom she calls “the godmothers of swing.” Is this a clue that Rowling is secretly a talented swing dancer? It’s a pretty personal detail, but we just have to know!
If Dumbledore was Transfiguration teacher before being the Headmaster of Hogwarts then why was he teaching Ridikulous in Newt Scamander's times? And we all know ridikulous belong to DADA.
