Honestly your hair looks fine just monitor it. How is your crown?

This is when its wet(I'm not too sure what the crown is. Its the centre of the head almost isnt it?)

Yeah that looks pretty normal. Just keep an eye on it for the next few months.

You may want to go in for an in person exam but it looks ok from here.

This is forum for the ones with hair loss .

It looks fine, although difficult to say if you have MPB or not or will in the future. Maybe ask a hair loss specialist or HT doctor if you really need to be sure.

I don't think you even have a "maturing" hairline based on the photos. Regarding a "maturing hairline" my understanding is this is basically just early stages of MPB, not that you have it.

i think this is diffuse thinning but idk the reason , i have also similar diffuse thinning but sadly it is all over the top,front and crown . Anyway keep an eye on it , if it gets worse see a dermo asap

I'm having the same problem. I'm 24 years old, almost 25 with a full head of thick hair. My hairline has always been high but recently I've noticed a bit of recession and thinning hair on the corners of my hair line. Nobody in my family is bad so I'm not sure if its a mature hairline or signs of balding

Hello Rebant23! Im glad that you had decided to get advice HERE on BTT!

Im one of the older members here that would talk with commonsense regarding hair questions and ones concerns.
Its especially good that you posted recent photos of your hairline at the very beginning of this thread.
The TRUTH is that you do NOT have hairloss as yet, you might NOT ever get it!
What you are noticing is a maturing of your hairline.That is a NORMAL thing to happen for most of us guys at the mid to late teenage years.
Be accepting of it and do NOT WORRY about anything.
Worry and STRESS can and would cause a percentage hairloss to most males...women too!
Stay very positive my friend!!
Your hair is great!!!!!
