im 19 and dont really have that much facial hair. some on my chin, a little under my bottom lip, and a nice "beaner stache", and about three to four hairs by the sides of my ears. my father and grandfather have a lot of facial hair and every male in my family can all grow good beards but i feel left out. im on the fith stage of tanners growth stages and im feeling like if i cant grow one now like all of my cousins and brothers i wont be able to grow a beard and feel like im apart of the family.

I wasn't able to grow a decent beard and mustache until I was in my 40's. Give it time. Every man is unique and progresses at their own rate.
