It looks like it could be Alopecia. Ask your parents to take you to a Dermatologist to find out what's going on.

An underactive thyroid gland often causes this kind of hair loss. When treated, the hair grows back. Your are correct, your condition is not related to the baldness gene.

It is probably alopecia or hypothyroidism. I doesn't sound like male-pattern baldness.

I'm 15 and have bald spots on my head it started in 6th grade as one spot. It was treated and went away. 2-3 years later it happens again but this time there's more. 3-8. Some small some bigger. They said its alopecia. I'm a good looking guy and its gotten to the point where I can't have short hair again that I like and look better in. So I have to have my hair pretty long to cover them up. I stress maybe a little more than the average teenager. But it has to do with more than that. Some kind of auto amune disorder. Which alopecia/ auto amune disorder affects 5% of the population. It's something to do with your body attacking your hair on accident or mistaking it for something bad.I recently got my hair buzzed off to a 2 thinking my bald spots are pretty much gone. There not/: its embarrassing. And the fact I'm going on vacation looking like this. Its something I'm going to have to deal with for the rest of my life most likely. When I grow up I'll probably just go bald and stay that way...
