As to the front,  it's already a sick look and definitely a keeper.  Sure it fits your face, but that is not the question.  The question is do you like the fact that you are becoming quite bearded from this view?  From the hair to the eyebrows to the stache to the soulpatch to the goatee... it all goes together nicely and creates a very good package.  In fact, it's so good that from that view you look to be in your 20s and to be a guy with a lot of confidence.

If you can handle that change mentally and give your sides a couple months, you will have a very successful beard for such a young guy.  My suggestion is to keep it all growing, be proud to sport the front, be patient to see the sides improve and make sure your mental progress is enough to keep this beard journey going.

As you post future pictures, point your camera right at each side and continue the front view with head raised a bit and light shirt as background.  It's pretty bold that you are posting these pictures but as you grow, you will become even more comfortable with your beard and you will look natural with it.  Not many guys can claim that kind of success for a length of 3-4 years as a teen.  We're really excited that you posted your journey and that you are becoming ready for some big transitions just ahead.
Always glad to see a comment from you Bill.The support you gave me is just amazing and you guys are the reason I am so confident of growing the beard even further.I hope the journey will stay as awesome as it is

We call them as we see them... in your case, your beard is just passing through the development stage on the sides [front is developed] on its way to becoming a truly awesome adult full beard.

There is no question that you will have the length for a good looking handlebar. First you must train your stache to lay horizontal and then you train the ends to spread out as far as possible... then you are ready to curl the tips.  Some guys wear their stache very wide with maybe a swirl most of the time... then on special occasions, set the handlebar.  You will have lots of choices there.

by combing it to the sides, if it struggles to stay in place, use a spiking glue.

I recommend a spiking glue like that of got2b because it will hold the hairs in position and it is easy to apply.  You work a small amount into the hairs by squeezing the hair between finger and thumb and working the one side of the stache.  Then take a tiny comb and run that from center to end point several times to work the glue into all the hairs. You can do any final shaping with your hands and after the glue dries in a few minutes, it will hold the hairs until they become wet.

I see that your stache is already laying almost horizontal toward the ends, but spread the glue thoughout anyway.  As you get the hang of this, kind of lift the comb away from your face as you draw it toward the ends... this will start to show some bulking of the hairs early on.

Your front continues to close in even more... looking really sick at this point.  Your strong side is also closing in well with good connection from head hair to goatee.  There is good evidence that the weaker side is starting to develop better with a lot of transitional activity.

Given the fact that your sides are unequal, a trim with beard trimmer could help.  The idea would be to buzz over with a very high setting on the beard trimmer just to keep the really long hairs in check. Of course, that's liable to expose a little more skin on the weaker side, but it looks like it will be coming along in a couple months.  I don't believe the front needs any trim at this time.

Nice update, dude! You have a nice developing young man's full beard! I especially like your front, which is exceptional for a 16 year old. Have you received any comments? How are you feeling about becoming bearded? Keep growing and beard on! :D

Great update man! Your beard is turning out amazing so far. You should take a look at the balboa beard style. It looks like you can have one already
