    I think if it's an inguinal hernia an indirect one is more congnetial while the direct one is acquired

    and the umblical hernia is more congenital

    also a congential hernia is usually noticed by the parents. rather than the pt him/herself

    also a diaphragmatic hernia is congenital ..

    I mean no specific way. but you can pick it up easily during history taking
