I am 16 and have just noticed this on the back of my head. Should I be worried?

Not at all, very normal.

Hi Bramble!

It's certainly is a "bald spot," in the sense that it is a spot on your scalp that lacks hair. I don't know why the other posters would say otherwise. That being said, it's very low on your scalp and not particularly indicative of male pattern baldness. But it IS a bald spot, and you should monitor it to see if it gets any larger.

This could be a very early alopecia areata, though unlikely. You should monitor it and maybe get an exam in person.
