Hair loss: Genetics?
My dad, his dad and his uncles are all bald/semi bald. My mom's side though, no one is bald. I notice that I can see a small section of my head where there isn't that much hair (see picture). Am I blading by genetics or is it a temporary hair loss?

They used to say that the daughter of a bald father would pass the baldness on to her sons. I don't know if thinking has changed on this, but it seems to apply to you. However, that reasoning would make my son bald, which he isn't, and my sisters' six sons bald, of which only two are. My mother's family look like they have a gorilla gene.
