    Cowlick or thinnig crown--need opinion

    Hello everyone..
    I have been losing hair since i was 19 years old,,i am now 22..
    I am norwood 1.5,, slight recesion at temples,,and thinnig in the front, i have been succefully dealing with frontal hair loss, but now my main concern is my crown..
    I have had a cowlick at crown since childhood, but now it seems to me it is getting slightly bigger (or maybe i'm just paranoid),and also my hair is weak all my life..
    pics:
    After drying

    Usual day

    Using flash on camera

    The pics were taken at the same day

    So what do you think, normal cowlick or started to thinning?
    To use minox on crown,, or to wait and observe?

    If you say that you're thinning on the front, then it's very possible that it's bald spot emerging. What's your family history of baldness?

    EDIT: Yeah, now I see. It's definitely a bald spot forming. It's most obvious on the first photo.

    There are some cases of MPB in my family. So what do you think to use minox on the back too?

    Yep, it's forming just like mine did. Good news is mine filled in with minox and fin in just a couple to 3 months so you should be set.
