Okay, just wanted to get some quick thoughts from those of you more knowledgeable on this subject then I am. I am 17, and have been under the assumption that I'm balding since about half a year ago. My dad's side of the family has a history of early balding, while my mom's side has no balding anywhere. Also, please do not worry about telling the truth in order to make me feel better about the subject. I am not totally against the idea of balding and will not take any drugs or supplements in order to sustain my hair.. I figure at this point if it goes, it goes. Thanks guys and tell me what ya think!

Oh my, HELLO Youngjosh!!
I dont have a much time to stay on the computer right now,,(got to drive out very soon).
I am so glad that you decided to post recent photos of you hairline as well!!
To be very honest and objective about this,
Your hair looks GOOD!!
It does not show as yet, any hair-loss!
What it DOES show is a maturing hairline.
That is a FACT of life for all of us.
When I was about your age, my hair started to mature as well.
I decided to ACCEPT it. I knew then that I was not going bald at that point in time. Didnt know back then if I would so i accepted how life was for 'today'.
Keep in mind that the majority of all males EXPERIENCE a maturing hairline.
Now later on, you might have hairloss but also, you might not develop major hairloss!
You and everyone else in the world really could not know for sure.
The most IMPORTANT thing for you to do is to not ALLOW YOURSELF to become overwhelmed, worried,STRESS OUT and too focused on hairloss possibilities .
You must be ACCEPTING of how things are for 'today'.
Again, you hair looks GREAT bro and I would not just say that or to try to fool you.
That is not how I am..I am here primarily to help advise others,,especially young guys like you.
A fact of life for all people is that, if you become STRESSED OUT over anything in life, especially hair,
YOU WILL experience a loss of your hair!!
That is a truth!!
Again, you have a maturing hairline,,NOT hair loss.
Being that you are 17 years old now, on your way to adulthood, you must accept how your hair is and anything else in your life.
So step back a little bit from it,.,,no worries about your hair.
Of course,,you can stay here with 'us' and have conversation!!
There are segments of us members (especially us older guys)
that are here to give TRUE advice to everyone with commonsense !
If you had hairloss I would have talked about it but you dont at this point in your life.
I suggest that you begin to start taking the multivitamin, Biotin.
Look it up, it has a very long proven history of improving men and women's hair!
It is over-the-counter.
Also, eat good foods,,,stay POSITIVE.
(dont smoke cigarettes either-lol)
Got to go now,,,,where do you live at? USA? Not that it matters of course.

I hope others here can also comment on 17 year old YoungJosh's 5 hair photos that he has posted.
His hair looks A-OK (very good) at this time in his life!!
'Josh, I hope that you respond here soon.
I wish that my head of hair looked like yours bro...Im sure that most all others would feel and say the same.
'Josh, stay POSITIVE and stay realistic-no stress needed.

Thank you for all the positive comments Artista. Also, in response to your previous question, yes I live in the USA. California to be specific. I'll just let nature take its course and if my hair is something that is destined to go, I suppose I might as well let it! Lol. Thanks again for responding so quickly with all the information. I do sincerely appreciate it.
