In brief: Maybe

Although part of the wardenburg syndrome complex, just the white forelock maybe genetic and benign.
Sensory neural deafness would make me suspicious for wardenburgs.

In brief: Yes, but...

The vast majority of white-forelock folks don't have it.
If your eyes are the same color and your hearing is as sharp as the next person's, you almost certainly don't have wwardenburg's.
