There are lots of chances to go bald as your maternal grandfather has the baldness. As per medical science, it has been said that baldness genes comes from mother side.

Baldness comes from the X chromosome. As a male, you get your X from your mother, whom carries two X chromosomes. If her mother's side of the family doesn't exhibit the trait, there's a chance you received that X chromosome and will not be bald.

There is no certainty that if your maternal grandfather was bald you would also be bald. It depends upon the combination of genes responsible for your hairs and also on the quality of care you take of your hairs.

You do get baldness from your mother. Thus your chances of becoming bald are very high. I learned this is my human growth and development class.

It might or might not be. There is no way to tell, as baldness can have many causes. Moreover, you might not have inherited the gene that causes baldness; after all, your other grandfather was not bald.
