Hey guys, In june 2014 I noticed recession on my temples and was quite a bit concerned. I didn't get on an medication and decided to wait it out a little bit longer as my hairline wasn't horrible. I wanted to come back with photos that I just took today and get your opinions if I should get on propecia/fin.

June 2014:

Today (Feb 2016)

I would appreciate advice and what norwood you think I may be.

I say 2.5 or 3 but there is not a big difference between those pictures so maybe it was always kind of like that. If not I would say big 3 most importantly propecia or AA to keep what you have.

I don't see a huge difference between the photos, but you do seem to have some recession. If I were you, I would definitely keep monitoring it like you're doing, and also set up an appointment with a trusted hair transplant surgeon who can test the miniaturization levels of your hair. This will give you a more clear idea of what's going on and where you're headed. Also, they can talk to you about medication and other options you can consider/try.

I dont think your hair has receded for the past year.
You hairline is large .
but you are pretty old , right ?
It doesn't matter and don't need to worry if you are not a teenager.
Adult people have pretty much high hairline but doesn't mean balding .
I have seen many elders maintain their hairline the way it is .
My father has bigger hairline similar to this , but a little more at crown .
As long as i remember he has not changed . He maintained his hairline at same place .
