Hi....dear Ravi..,
Thanks for choosing HCM.,
Growth of Moustach Hairs depend on Hormones levels.....,
During the male puberty, the hypothalamus secretes ...,
Hormones that stimulate the pituitary gland to release gonadotrophic hormones..,
which consist of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH)....,
FSH...... stimulates development of the tubes in the testes in...,
which sperm production takes place and is thought to be involved in sperm maturation....,
LH...... stimulates the testes to release testosterone.......,
In males, puberty is marked by enlargement of the testicles and penis...,
lengthening of the vocal cords, which causes the voice to deepen, and growth of pubic hair....,
Facial hair may also begin to appear on the face, chest, and abdomen...,
But some individuals take more time to grow the hairs on face(Moustach)..,
So check FSH, LH levels...,,
Consult good endocrinologist...and go accordingly..ok...good luck..,

At the age of 26; if there are no other issues to address; it's unlikely that your cousin will benefit by hormonal medication or tests.

Hormonal medication can only be started only if benefits outweigh the risks.

Hair transplant for moustache are is a relatively simple solution in such scenarios with very good outcome.

You can mail his pictures to know the exact number of hair needed and expected outcome.

Hi Ravi,
welcome to HCM,
as suggested by other consultants, go for the tests and if they are normal, you might be helped with facial hair tranplant
