Ok just curious but I was wondering if I am really experiencing mpb or is it in my head? Family history: moms side my grandpa had his hair until he was about 50 and started losing it maybe due to old age? My uncles on my moms side both have there hair and they are 48 and 52 now my fathers side. My grandfather was bald and went bald early my grandma said maybe mid 20s and my uncle is bald as well and lost his hair around the same age as my grandfather but my dad still has his hair and hes 43 just has thin hair but has hair still am I at risk with family history? I am 24 and I just keep thinking about it so much

It is very difficult to accurately predicted loss based on family, however if MPB resides in there then there is always the risk.
Are you able to share any pictures ?

Actually here are the photos I took the other day that I was going to post.
They are mostly on my cowlick/crown area where I see the thinning, the two other ones are of my top scalp and my hair line or temple region.
