Twins, Clones and fingerprints

I know it says somewhere that identical twins have different fingerprints, but I was wondering about cloning. It's for a sci-fi story of mine: there's a clone made of one of the good guys by the bad guys and then force-grown to the point where it's the same age as him. What I want to know is: would the there be any chance that the clone's fingerprints would be mistaken for the original's?
