Default Stupid Line! Help!

How do i get rid of this stupid line? See the seam in the middle of the face? next to the red line....ahh!

I made the right side of the head then made a duplicate with X set to -1 to make the left side. But they have a goofy line in the middle. Any ideas on how i can get rid of this line when i merge the 2 sides?

See the image

Thanks this place rocks!

probably need to merge vertices and then soften the edges. I've got a video tutorial going over this at my site if interested. Link in sig.

Nice model, btw.

if you have version 4.5, just delete the one half and select polygons > mirror geometry and then smooth
