: The question is, if the dad is bald, is it an indication of going bald?
Actually it is 50/50.
The primary baldness gene is on the X chromosome, which men get only from their mothers, but other factors are also in play. The hereditary factor is slightly more dominant on the woman's side, but research suggests that men who have a bald father are more likely to develop male pattern baldness than those who don't.
But on the other hand, there are many people who enjoy long hair to the very advanced age in spite of having parents with hair loss problem.
PS. You've got cool hair! :)
