  • Fold mountains can form when an oceanic plate and a continental plate move towards each other.
  • The oceanic plate sinks beneath the continental one at the compressional boundary.
  • The sediments on the ocean bed in the area together with the rocks forming the edge of the continent are compressed, causing them to fold into mountains.
