Does more body hair (for males) mean I have more testosterone than others? In other words, ss there any correlation between body hair and testosterone?

In brief: Testosterone

Studies have shown a proportional relationship of testosterone levels to the amount of body hair.
The hair growth response to testosterone differs in different parts of the body. Hence, in some men, for example, testosterone promotes hair growth in the abdomen and back while hair growth is suppressed in the scalp, leading to male pattern baldness.

In brief: No

Body hair is usually genetically determined.
Middle east, mediterraen, south asians usually have more body hair than other men due but not related to testosterone.
