Is there a topology, for a dimension D figure, that preserves its d<D1 dimensional singularities even under deformation? Concerning 3dimensional figures, those singularities would possibly be 1dimensional edges possibly connected to zerodimensional vertices.

What do you mean by singularities here? Does this mean the edges which generate trivial homology groups?

The best way I can describe a shape representative to my idea is a sphere transforming to a cube but barely differing from the former. Would singularities like edges and vertices be geometrically definable, even if the shape were just differentially different from a sphere? (Singularities here are places nondifferentiable in a at least one direction.) I now understand that for the shape being considered, under topology, genus zero would be conserved. If the consideration above is not one of topology, does it appear in math?
