Hi, i am a 17 year old male, and i have always had worrys about my hair, since i was younger, i am practically a Norwood 0, blonde, shortish hair, but one thing im worried about is the front of my hairline, right at the front there is this small spot that looks quite thin compared to the rest of my hairline at the front, now im pretty sure ive always had this and just not really cared or noticed, but now its starting to worry me too much, i cant stop thinking about it wherever i am and its annoying me, now, ages ago when i was younger i put nair hair removal cream just below the area where this patch is, but not exactly where it is, so i figured it cant be that. now my dad had good hair up until atleast 49/50 which is when he started to recede properly and thin on top, even now his hair is great just abit thinner, so i am also going against the idea that this is going to spread to my whole frontal hairline because noone in my family both sides ever has. does this look like anything to worry about? just want to clear this off my mind and live happily. :(

It's likely nothing. If you're done some research here, you know there's such thing as a "mature hairline," which virtually every man develops in his teen or twenties. The hairline moves up to roughly a centimeter above the top wrinkle of the forehead. This could just be you developing a mature hairline, which is totally normal. Just keep an eye on it, take pictures every now and then, and other than that forget about it. If your corners/temples start to move up, that's a better sign that you have some MPB.
