You side views look very good . Your right side looks normal. Left looks like you have recession, maybe a 3. Front side is hard to tell because hair is so short but left side looks more receded maybe a 3 again.
I know you said you didn't want to, but you can often put up the appearance of having much more hair by letting it grow out somewhat , but not too much.
Yes it will contrast thin areas in the back but you let the hair right outside the thin area grow slightly longer and do a very small combover for that one area.
As long as you don't let it get too long it will work. Also blow drying does something to enhance the fullness-along with some hairspray. You see what my hairline really looks like after receding for 30 years, so I have added this fuzzy pic taken 3 months ago to show what it looks like when it is combed into place. It doesn't fool everyone, but still better than slicking my hair back like in the other pictures. Consider giving it a shot...
