In brief: Rarely
Young men can develop baldness (alopecia) for many reasons, including breakage, certain skin diseases that cause destruction of the hair follicles, autoimmune disease, iron deficiency, vitamin b deficiency, chemotherapy, shedding after illness, hereditary (genetic) factors, or alopecia areata.
If hormonal problems are suspected, other signs might exist including hirsuitism and acne.
