I'm 20 years old, and for the past couple of years have been wondering whether I'm receding or not. It's a great source of insecurity for me, and it has resulted in me constantly touching my hair to cover up what I perceive to be a "bald patch". I'm planning on getting a skinhead soon anyway, so I won't have to constantly flatten out my fringe, as it's turned from a habit into a compulsion.

I'm not sure if it's something I'm genetically predisposed to; my Dad is in his mid fifties and has most of his hair, although it's going a bit thin, and I realise genetic traits can be recessive (excuse the pun). I've been clutching at the hope that it's the shape of my head, or my hair (I have very thin hair anyway), but I realise there's a chance I may be receding. Anyway, here are some pictures, so you can judge for yourselves...
