Hi I am 17 and I am extremely worried about my hairline! I think it has been receding back but I am not sure... I have always has a high hairline but I would like to know if you think it has receded. I pictures from 6 months ago and some recent ones, I am not really sure if there is much difference. What do you think? how badly has it receded ? what stage do you think I am on the norwood scale? any advice? Should i start any treatments? Please be honest. (Recent images) http://imgur.com/a/lISDl

It's hard to tell if your hair is becoming thin because one set of pics is dry hair and the other set is wet hair. But as far as the hairline, I think it looks the same. Just keep an eye on it and don't let it get out of hand. Don't wait until you are already a NW3+ to start using medication, a mistake too many guys make. For now it looks the same to me. Can you visit a dermatologist?

looks to me that it is getting thin at the middle of your scalp, go and see a good doctor

At the very least, continue to do what you are doing. Document with photographs every few months. If you do notice you are losing hair, then it will be time to act. Nobody knows your hair more than you do, so you should be able to tell if you are losing it. I knew my hair was falling out way before somebody had to tell me it was.
