Photos of your hairline alone are generally not a good indicator of MPB. Photos of your vertex and mid-anterior provide a much more accurate indicator of MPB. However in your case it is pretty obvious that you do have thinning going on.
The only oral pill that is proven to stop it and FDA approved for that purpose is Finasteride (Propecia) and that requires a prescription. Without seeing your vertex or mid-anterior, it is impossible to tell if topical Minoxidil (Rogaine) will be of any help to you. You may benefit from using the Hairmax laser comb every other day, but again without seeing your vertex or mid-anterior it's impossible to tell.
