As I mentioned on your last post, if your worried see a Dermatologist they can examine your hair and give you advice. But also keep pics, we don’t know if it’s always been like this. The conditions your taking pics in would show up anybody’s crown.

You have no need to worry, it’s all looking perfectly fine. You now have pics to monitor for any changes.

No issues.  You are dealing with the whirl and contrast.  

Get a piece of paper and draw a dot.  Now draw a cross so that it intersects the point.  Well, that's exactly what happens in the whirl area.  The hair grows away from the point.  So. if you were to put the pencil right on the dot and start drawing lines away from the point, how many lines would it take to fill the paper? TONS.  Hair in the front and mid section grow forward at an angle and thus there is shingling - which helps to provide coverage. Because of this concept, everyone shares a whirl, the weakest point on the scalp.

You have dark hair and light scalp.  This contrast makes it seem worse than what it really is.  If it bothers you look into SMP or just use a camouflaging agent like Toppik.
