Genetics are a major factor about how you look, whether you like it or not...
But being identical doesn't mean other people don't see differences in the two. If Nole Fan thinks they look rather different, she's not saying they are fraternal... The Bryans are identical too, I don't think it's hard to tell them apart either. It depends on who's looking at them, some people have a hard time telling them apart, others think they don't look the same at all. That's what I was trying to say with that some people think we are identical and others immediately notice we are fraternal.
I agree that genetics are a major factor, but even identical twins don't look 100% the same...
