Abstract: Let $ X$ be a smooth projective variety over an algebraically closed field $ k$. Let $ {\operatorname{Hilb} ^d}(X)$ be its Hilbert scheme of 0-dimensional subschemes of $ X$ of degree $ d$. Let $ [{\operatorname{Hilb} ^d}(X)](k)$ be the set of $ k$-rational points. We prove that the subset of points of $ [{\operatorname{Hilb} ^d}(X)](k)$ corresponding to fat points on $ X$ is a locally closed subset with respect to the Zariski topology.
