I inherited a strange hairline characteristic from my Maternal father, one side is and always has been far higher than the other, however it skipped his son. Does this mean I will have the same pattern of hair loss as my grandfather? I ask because everyone in the family except for his son (my uncle) has a pretty good head of hair. Should one even consider uncles and great uncles when looking at their family tree in terms of hair loss or is that too far off?
These may be independent variables and could genetically express themselves differently in the sequential generations. I do not believe hairlines and hair loss are linked genetically, so you can have one without the other (the variable is hair loss).
