This may be alopecia areata, you need to get a scalp biopsy done to rule out times capitis, CRP ANA tests.

This seems like Alopecia , the there are multiple treatments not all work for everyone, you can start by trying corticosteroids, minoxidil
Good Luck

Thanks for the query..

It is looking like Androgenic Aloepecia that is male pattern baldness..
I would like to know that are you taking any medication?
Is any one else in family like your father or grandfather had baldness?
Are you in any long standing stressful situation?
Do you have itching in scalp or any white flakes over the scalp?

Please write back so that I can advise you how to proceed for treatment..
