    Baldness only comes from the father of the mother. Unless that’s what his grandad is.

    He is the father of his mother, but baldness would be inherited from the men on the maternal side, so take a look at Opal’s brother, if she has one.

    Check it out on WebMD. According to this article, there may be some other genes involved, but the main genetic component is as I mentioned above.
