Congratulations: You’ve discovered phenomenon called pili multigemini. It’s when a hair seems to have Siamese-twinned itself, and now two hairs (or even several more) grow from one single follicle.
Is it possible to grow more hair follicles?
“If a follicle has closed, disappeared, scarred, or not generated a new hair in years, then a new hair wouldn’t be able to grow,” Fusco says. But if the follicle is still intact, yes, it is possible to regrow the hair—or to improve the health of the existing thinner hairs.
How many hairs a day do we grow?

Will baldness be cured by 2020?
Currently, there’s no cure for male pattern baldness. However, medications like finasteride and minoxidil can help you keep the hair you have and, in some cases, potentially regrow some of the hair you’ve lost due to male pattern baldness.
