Title says it all. Is this just lighting or is it early mpb. I'm 17 by the way. Used to have thicker and longer hair then buzzed it.

Also like to mention that I had just taken a shower and didn't touch it.

Your pictures at the minute make it impossible to tell at the moment unfortunately. To see, you need to post a picture of you pulling your hair back, so that your hairline is visible. In terms of lighting, it's better to use a natural light when you take photos (with no flash), but that's mainly applicable for pictures of the crown rather than hairline.

That's the thing though. This is taken under bathroom lighting. Up close under bathroom lighting, anywhere, even bathrooms at school, my hair appears thin. So much so that I feel like if I wanted to I could count the hairs along the hairline. Under other lighting conditions I honestly don't have any clue what it looks like. For all I know I could be sitting in class, having my hair look like that.

Well since you're mainly talking about the front, I wouldn't worry about lighting conditions. But for the photos your hair should be pulled back so that we can see the hairline. Although tbh, it doesn't look bad at all, you look fine with your hair like that. My guess without seeing would be that it's either a mature hairline or you aren't balding at all, neither is anything to worry about.

My hairline is intact... Probably normal mature hairline I'm just concerned with the density and seeing a lot of scalp. Under bathroom lighting which is where I mostly see myself I am disgusted by the fact I can see so much scalp. The density appears low. I don't know if that's how it looks to other under other lighting.
