Hi,

A few months ago I suddenly got many gray hairs on the sides of my head, and since I am only 25 years old that kind of scared me. This week I used a mirror to shave the hairs in my neck. This way I noticed something that looked like a bald spot on the crown of my head, although I can't tell for sure. Some baldness does run in the family, but it seems like it only sets in around ~40 and it does not start at the crown of the head. Am I just imagining things or am I really going bald up there? Some input is really appreciated

cheers,
Mark

It looks like a normal hair whorl to me but with MPB you never really know. If you are concerned, the best thing you could do is monitor your situation - perhaps take pictures after every couple of months and then compare.

Just to make sure, does anyone have a different opinion?

Yeah, perfectly normal cowlick imho.
Just check it now and then for receding or thinning and you'll be fine.

That's exactly how mine started, on the first picture you can see the cowlick, that's what I thought too, it's nothing, then in a year it progressed into massive thinning, back then I thought I still had 5-3 years until it became noticeable, how off I was. I'm not trying to be negative or scare you, it could really be nothing but it could also be the start so do check if it progresses further.

Thanks a lot everyone, I hope you are right I will keep an eye on it during the next few months just to make sure it doesn't change.
