I'm gonna complete 3 months post op tomorrow since my FUE surgery
I have noticed a stubble growth in the hairline ( on one side only and the other side nothing is there !) is this normal?

Completely normal. I'm 4.5 months post op and one side is still growing more than the other side. The weak side is starting to catch up and I think they'll even out in the next 3-4 months. I've seen a lot of guys who are in the same boat and say the same thing about one side growing better than the other (at least in the first 4-5 months). 3 months is very very early. Enjoy the next 6 months. It gets fun soon.

It can take a full 18 months in some cases. In rare cases, results do not even occur(it is medicine after all). As long as you chose a good doctor and team, you should be fine and your odds should work in your favor.

Hi Aventador,

As previously mentioned it can take up-to 12 months to even out. I have read that some people who have experienced this have taken to using minoxidil to even out the results. However I have also read the opposite that some people have applied minoxidil and it has halted or even disrupted the growth. I would say you're best bet is to just allow it to grow without adding any other chemicals over the next 9 months.
