Pediatric Alopecia

I have a almost 2 yr old grandson who was diagnosed with Alopecia. He has one circular bald spot on top of head. Doctor wants to start him on a ointment usually prescribed for 12 and up, Clobetasol 0.05%. My daughter will hold off on this until sees a pediatric derm in Sept.
Of interest is that he is a twin, sister also has very thin hair. My daughter was told this may be a result of her thyroid condition. Wondering if anyone has any experience in this disease with children. Thank you in advance.

Are you able to share why your daughter thinks it might be a result of her thyroid condition?
