Is it normal for a 17 year old to start receding his hairline?

Well I'm only 17, and I think I've noticed my hairline receding and thinning just a small bit in the corners. Is that normal? I have tried: nothing. I think it was caused by: I have no clue. Stress, maybe?

Receding hair can be a normal, but not common, occurrence in the late teens if it involves hereditary changes owing to genetics. There is almost nothing you can do to stop it if it is owing to the genetics of some of your forefathers. If genetics are not to blame, then the hair might be thinning only temporarily: you will need to revise your diet, adding more protein-rich food, remove any stress from your life, and consult your therapist if you are taking any prescribed medication. It is obligatory that you do not take any medication without a doctor's prescription, as it may be harmful at the age of 17. See a therapist, or better yet, a trichologist (the hair doctor), to see what options you may have. Those doctors may charge you for their services, so if you wish to do it anonymously, then you will need to estimate the sum that you need to spend for the visit. Also, it will be great if you can massage your scalp twice a day for 20-40 minutes and apply burdock oil for an hour or two once a day and rinse your hair afterwards.
