Cleft palate in the absence of any additional abnormalities has an empirical 5%-10% recurrence risk for the offspring of any affected person. A generation can certainly be skipped, but not in any constant fashion. In your fiance's situation, the recurrence risk for any of his offspring would be about 5%. i.e. 1 in 20.
