Male pattern baldness is largely X-linked (female chromosome). This means that the genes responsible for this kind if baldness is on your mother’s side. Try looking at your maternal uncles, brothers of your grandmother, etc. Factors such as stress can also hasten the process of baldness. If you want this treated, you can try Minoxidil lotions. I do hope I have answered your question and take care always.
