Brief Answer:
Androgenic alopecia

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX
Hair fall from central area is mainly androgenic alopecia ( male pattern baldness ).
It can be easily controlled with the use of 5 % minoxidil twice daily and a saw palmetto tablet daily.
Both these medication are safe and effective and easily available over the counter.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
