    It is not bad at all! Please do not panic. Just keep reading the forums and asking questions. Itís hard to tell if you have the very early stages of Male Pattern Baldness or not. Are you shedding more hair then usual? Have you noticed if the quality of your hair has changed in the past few years?

    It's possible that it's the early stages of MPB, but it's hard to say. Going to a hair loss specialist would probably be the way to go.

    Winston is right: don't panic. Your hair still looks good. If it's MPB, you will most likely have good success with medication.

    It's normal for males to lose their temple hair, usually in their late teens or early 20's.
    That said, what you're describing could potentially be symptoms of genetic hair loss.
    I would definitely see a hair loss specialist. If it's MPB, you've caught it early, which is good. If it's not MPB, you can forget about this and move on.

    looks okay. I find that when my hair is greasy or wet, hairloss seems worse than it is, probably the same for you.

    Your hair looks absolutely fine to me. You could have very early signs of hairloss, but they don't exactly come across through photos.

    It sounds like very early MPB and like it was already said, you noticed it early enough to possibly do something about it. While itís becoming wildly unpopular to suggest that you see a doctor about possibly starting Propecia, it really is the only medication proven to stop or slow the progression of hair loss for the long term. It works well for most people and despite what you might read from ill informed people, it is generally considered to be a safe drug. The choice to consider it is ultimately yours.
