Hi, I posted in this forum a year ago when I was 17 about a receding hairline I thought I had. I have sort of ignored it for a year now until the other day when someone said my hair looks like it's receding, and when I look at it it does look like something is happening. It's been going on since 2014, that's when I first noticed it. What do you think I am on the Norwood scale? And do you think I should go on minoxidil or something? I am going to buy some Alpecin tomorrow. Anyway here's some pics of my hair. It looks more receded on my left side (your right side). Thanks for reading.


Could a moderator fix my photos? I don't know why they are the wrong way round.

I've fixed the photos. The first photo is me when I was 13, you can see the big difference in that photo compared to the other's. My hair line has noticably receded. If I start taking minoxidil do you think the hair will grow back?

Alpecin does likely not work, I remember reading a news articles about it:

For me, it looks like maturing. Nothing to worry about. Just keep track of it if anything recedes more, but I don't think it's likely gonna to happen in any soon future. You're only 18.
