26 year old, unsure about my hair loss

Posted , 4 users are following.

I've noticed over the past few years my hair receding slightly on the sides. But now it seems to have started thinning on each side of the crown.

From googling things I've been slightly worried that it could be from an untreated STD like syphilis which can cause "occasionally, patchy hair loss". Or is this just normal hair loss?

How can I make my hair grow back or is this how it's meant to be?

Any guidance would be much appreciated 😃
