It may be, but it may also just be age appropriate. It wouldnt hurt to go in for an in person examination.

Hi Nick187 and welcome to this great forum...
It could be that you are ONLY experiencing a maturing hairline especially since you are now 20 years old.
It is nothing to WORRY about.
Worry and STRESS WILL cause serious issues to your scalp and eventually to your health too.
Keep this in mind,
because you are ONLY 20 years old, you do NOT yet have the proper FORESIGHT available to you.
Once you are in your mid to late 20s you WILL have that proper foresight,
the ability to predict the consequences your actions.
Don't take this as an insult...Im trying to help you out.
There are things that you can do to improve your hair.
Have a good day!!

Dude that's perfectly normal. When you want to start worrying is if the front middle starts thinning and the crown would be next. Getting older you're going to lose some of your hairline, but just keep an eye out for those two spots. You're fine, I would say check back again in 2 years.
