: My dad is 62 years old and he's pretty much bald. Minus the hair that surrounds the side of his head. I'm currently clocking in at 35 years old.
: The question is, if the dad is bald, is it an indication of going bald?
: The hair is going at 29 months or so.
The Rule of Thub is "look at your mother's brothers". In short, since the trait is from your maternal side you'd have a better idea that way. But it is a crap shoot. I have two first cousins [my mom's sister's boys], one with a full head of hair and the other who has lost a fair deal of his. Our mothers had no brothers, and we found out that our grandmother was adopted, so no reference through great uncles. Grow it a long [ in both senses of the word] as you can and enjoy it.
