Could be true. That's why I edited my comment. But then again I see NW3 goes to the ear in example pictures and I'm not at that level yet. But not a full NW2 either. More like in the middle.Google, NW3A hair transplants. You will see your pattern fits that the best. You are not a NW2 anymore. The good news is you are starting finasteride at a young age and your hair characteristics will allow you to hide your recession for many years if you stick to your treatments.
