will my son's hair stay curly?

Neither me nor his father have curly hair. Mine is a 2A but his father's is as straight as a board. Everyone keeps telling me it will go straight and I'm not gonna cut it for as long as I can put it off. His hair is about a 3A..maybe on the cusp for a 3B. I'm not sure. What do you guys think? Good chance to go straight or do you think it will be curly for the long run? I've attached a photo

It's hard to tell - kind of a wait and see thing. Cute hair on his head right now, though!

When my son was little, he had little curls on the ends of his hair, but by the time he was 3 or 4, the little baby curls had gone away.

Now that he's 14, the wave is reappearing with a mean streak of its own, and cowlicks just like mine (poor kid!). As he moves through the teen years, I expect him to get a little curlier like his uncle, or maybe just wavier with spirals like mine. But he likes it short, so I may never really know

My brother and I also had curlier hair as little ones, straighter hair through childhood and curlier as we went through adolescence, so genetics, hormones and puberty have a lot to do with it.

I love wild, fluffy curls on little kids, so if he'll let you keep the curls right now, go for it!

Mod CG since 11/2012. My waves occasionally look best when combed out, so you can pry my combs from my cold, dead hands
Most of the babies I've seen "lose" their curl have had a much looser pattern of waves. Not to say that it's impossible, but, I think it's more likely he'll continue to be a curly, based on my observations and experience with friends' kids. Either way, though, he's pretty adorable.
