    A change in hormonal levels due to puberty could be what triggered both your acne and the change in your hairline, but I doubt the acne itself caused anything.

    Well, true. Acne cleared up a long time ago. But I assume my horomones spiked out of control at 16-17

    Looks good to me. The shape may be concerning to you, but take it from us who actually have thinning in the front, your hairline is pretty thick and full at this point. I wouldnt put much worry into it, just keep an eye on it over the next few years. jump onto propecia if it gets worse and you want to do something about maintaining your hair, going forwards

    On a side note, I wish I had your hairstyle haha

If you look at the typical 13 year old's hairline usually they're usually very rounded, but the typical 25 year old's hairline has a bit of a peak. Usually that change happens over the course of a year or two, and then the hairline stabilizes again until balding happens later in life. Especially since you said it happened when you were around 17 and has since stopped changing, I think that's probably what's happened to you. Of course, anything is possible and there are teenagers who actually do start going bald, but if you aren't seeing your hairline actively recede anymore or seeing excessive shedding I doubt you're one of those unlucky few.

    And you can always go see a dermatologist to confirm, nobody can tell with 100% certainty over the internet.
    This is as good a place as any for me to ask this: is it really the case that guys can experience "maturing" of the hairline that stops at a cosmetically-acceptable point without progressing straight to full-on "balding"? My understanding, which may be incorrect, has been that "maturing" hairlines are simply the early stages of balding.

    Yes, men who experience a maturing hairline don't go past a Norwood 2, but usually they stop sooner. Acceptable is of course subjective but I think most would think NW2 is fine. Whether or not that's considering early balding or not is debateable and will depend on who you ask.

    If you look at most male celebrities in their 20s, for example, they're probably going to have a peak (unless they've already begun balding), while incredibly few kids/preteens have any sort of peak. It's pretty apparent if they were a child star and you can look up their hairlines from when they were a teenager to later.
