When men undergo premature balding, then widow's peak starts showing up. Well, widow's peak is a V-shaped hairline with hair diminishing in a direction away from the center of the forehead and giving an appearance of a 'peak'. The peak divides the hair growth in a bilateral symmetry, without which the hairline runs straight. But guys, do not dread this; consider it as a different element.

It's widely believed that the widow's peak, also known as cow's lick, is managed by one gene with two alleles. And that allele's dominance over the straight hairline allele gives birth to the widow's peak. This myth is not supported by any scientific findings though.
