Brief Answer:
You look normal.

Detailed Answer:

Welcome to HCM.

Here, I need to assure you that you look completely normal to your age. All adults do not have equal density of facial hair. Your shaved stubbles clearly show that you have grown adequate beard.

If there is anything specific to ask like regarding facial hair, mustache etc, please feel free to ask.

All the best.

Brief Answer:
unreasonable anxiety

Detailed Answer:
There is nothing like facial maturity if you are not asking about facial hair; facial look is mostly heriditory and there is very little you can do about it.
Being a doctor, I see no reason why you think you look like 16 year old. You seem to be building a sense of unreasonable anxiety about it. You need to change you approach.
You look fully matured and your face looks normal to the age. This is true, believe me. If you still feel otherwise, and keep worrying about it, it may effect your performance.
If your anxiety doesn't subside even with reassurance, it is better to consult a psychologist and start working upon changing your attitude. Medicines cannot change the 'looks' of a person, but can certainly change the attitude.
Hope the point is understood.
