Male pattern baldness is a genetic condition that is inherited from either parent and can be passed down to their children. If you or your spouse have a history of male pattern baldness, then there is a chance that your child may also inherit the gene and develop baldness at a young age.
However, there is no way to know for sure if your child has inherited the gene for male pattern baldness until they start showing the signs of balding. Typically, male pattern baldness starts to occur in adult men in their late twenties or thirties, although it can start earlier.
If you are concerned about your child inheriting male pattern baldness, then you may want to talk to your doctor or a genetic counselor. They may be able to provide you with more information about the likelihood of your child inheriting the gene and can offer you advice on how to manage your concern.
