Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query to ATD for an opinion,I understand your concern completely here that your secondary sexu al characters have been underdeveloped especially your beard and moustache and you look younger than your age. It has to be understood that the hair growth pattern is most often related to the genetics of the person and if there has been men in the family without mustaches then likely that your hair growth may also be delayed or retarded.But at the same time if there are other issues like decreased chest hair , pubic hair or even any sort of erectile dysfunction then you must get a serum testosterone levels checked for yourself including free testosterone and SHBG levels. This shall help rule out any testosterone deficiency which could possibly be a cause for the same. This is treatable but has to be diagnosed first.I suggest you visit your physician and get these labs done and thereafter review with an endocrinologist.I hope i have answered your query in detail,Wishing you goo health,Regards
