In my family everything from cousins to aunts to uncles grandparents etc. None of them are bald. My father had a widows peak most of his life and had it until around 46 before he passed. HIS father is in his 70s with a widows peak. My moms father had a full head of hair at 50+ before he died. Now at the age of 21 in the last several months i have had several people tell me that im going bald and losing hair because of how far my temples receded. my hair looks kind of like josh duhamel the actor but with a little more recession. I am scared because of how young i am and how far it is. But my grandfathers hair is exactly like mine at 70+ thoughts????

pic of dads hairline i can get




keep in mind my picture makes it looks more straight cut but thats just because it was kind of like a fauhawk style i had for the day. My hair isnt falling out or thinning anywhere else really. Just the temples have receeded alot. Now is it possible i will just have this hairline forever like my dad and his dad or am i ****ed by some random genetic malfunction.

Your hair seems quite similar to mine, I'd love to hear what people have to say

I dont think there is much to worry about. You look fine!

It looks to me like you have early stage classic MPB but photos from the side would be needed to be conclusive. Hair loss genetics comes from both side of the family, not just your father's. Get checked up with a dermatologist who knows a thing or two about hair loss for certainty.
