It’s not that they get a lot of wrinkles! It’s just more noticeable without as much hair.

Well I don’t have an wrinkles under my hair. I also had to have my head shaved for military school and no one who had wrinkles.

Um, how old are you? A lot of my uncles have this and I think it’s just from old age. My one uncle is overweight and they aren’t wrinkles, there little rolls on the back of his head.

That’s what I mean by wrinkles, just rolls of…skin? I’m 17 and was 15 when I had to get my head shaved for the plebe system.

I’m 21 and have a super short buzz cut but I don’t have wrinkles or the flaps of skin. I’m no where near overweight either. (5’ 6” and 120lbs) I’mpretty sure it’s more common in hefty older fellows.

Ok, wait! If I look straight up (and only when it’s straight up) I get one roll.

me too Randy! it might be my neck though. haha I bet I looked like a crazy person.

Haha, I’m at work and when I looked over after my experiment, the guy next to me was just starring awkwardly. Hahaha!

Mine is right in the middle of where my head meets my neck. I’m thinking it’s just the extra skin for when you crain your head forward. I bet everyone has it when they look up.

Now I’m going to look weird trying to catch people looking up…. Jeeze louise.

haha thats hilarious! I’m alone in my living room so I didnt get any awkward looks..not even from my doggy.

porksoda it’s your turn now to do our experiment..you did ask the question. ;)

Yea I get one on my upper neck haha, but the ones I see can get like little river systems

Here’s a picture of what I’m talking about, don’t look at is neck, look at his head. If you can see those darker lines that’s what I mean; I know it’s a not a great picture but from some of the pages I came across for “head wrinkles” just creeped me out-search if dare ltmq(laugh to myself quietly[it’s more honest that way])

Yeah, look at that dude. He’s over weight for sure. I think that’s just fat buildup on their head/neck instead of the arms, thighs, hips or mid section. It has to be dispurssed throughout the body.

When I lost all my hair after chemo, I had no wrinkles or rolls on back of head. And I was thrilled when hair grew back into a buzz cut. (female)
