Hello Abrar.
The pattern of your baldness (top centre to front) indicates androgenic alopecia. It is the common male pattern baldness affecting 30% of all male population by age of 30 years.

Two medicines are approved for use in this condition and give good results in majority of patients. These are finasteride and minoxidil, which you can try after consulting your doctor. Please note that it takes up to three months for the results to show. Greying of hair is usually idiopathic and not much can be done about it. If your diet is zinc deficient, you can take supplements for that.

Regrowth of lost hair is usually not possible with medicines. If you wish to regrow hair in bald area, hair transplantation is the only solution.

Best regards,
Dr. Sharad Mishra
