Basically the title says everything. Thanks for any help you can give.

You're way better off than me, bro. I'm 22 with a full on nw3 and crown thinning, you're like a solid nw2. Propecia can help you keep what you've got but I wouldn't invest in that until you see miniaturization in your crown or hairline. Your hair looks great!

I agree. Most likely a NW2. I was a 3 and was losing a considerable more amount of hair than you are. Your hairline looks great and DemonsWithRyu is correct - your hairline will change/mature as you get older and it doesn't necessarily mean it's receding or the result of MPB. You could always take Finasteride if baldness seems to run in your family to help prevent any future loss from happening... But for now, I think you're solid.

Then again, when mine first started thinning/changing, I was sure that my hairline was receding as a result of MPB (and I was right). But all my friends (and even my barber) assured me it was nothing more than my hairline "changing/maturing". Nope. It was receding - and I knew it. Only way to know though is to see a specialist. They'll be able to tell you for sure so you can take preventative measures on your end to keep it from progressing if it is indeed MPB.

Good luck! :)
