Not having studied this myself of course, I'm merely
relaying the information from an article in the new

"Triceratops had three facial horns and a short, thick neck-frill with  
a saw-toothed edge. Torosaurus also had three horns, though at  
different angles, and a much longer, thinner, smooth-edged frill with  
two large holes in it. So it's not surprising that Othniel Marsh, who  
discovered both in the late 1800s, considered them to be separate  
Now Scannella and Horner say that triceratops is merely the juvenile  
form of torosaurus. As the animal aged, its horns changed shape and  
orientation and its frill became longer, thinner and less jagged.  
Finally it became fenestrated, producing the classic torosaurus form"
