    19 years old and things getting problematic?

    Hey, a 19-year old here. Just wanted to know if I'm balding and how severe this could be (in the long run, especially), and what options do I really have.

    I haven't suspected anything until a few days ago when due to a online quiz I was searching for what a receding hairline is (my native language is not English so that's why). Then I was worried if I might have the same problem, and decided to check it out as I went to the bathroom. I took the following pictures.

    This my normal: ... hit3d.jpg/
    A bit close up:****2n.jpg
    And the top:****5.jpg/
    But then I expose my forehead and:****.jpg/
    And then from the side:****4.jpg/

    So from what I gather, it seems pretty bad. I've been unaware of this because I've always had medium-length hair (a bit short a while ago as well, but didn't really notice anything). I am pretty sure there's no history of balding in my family. And while taking a shower and looking at the mirror, for some reason I haven't noticed it all, only when I started suspecting this became the case. I've dyed my hair twice a few years ago, and then my mom told me that I lost a bit of texture after that, but nothing serious.

    Also, I haven't noticed any hair from falling off either.

    I'm prepared for the worst, and I am considering consulting a dermatologist in a month (can't right now because I'm in a boarding school). This looks pretty serious, albeit at the moment not very visible with my medium haircut, but isn't this NW 2.5?

    Input is greatly appreciated, thank you.

    Yes it does look like you have a slight loss at hairline. Another pic would help to figure it out M8. lol.
