Genetically speaking, don't look to your father if you're going bald. Scientists are pretty sure the gene for baldness is passed down the mothers half of your genes.

Gentic inheirtance could be the thing though as well.
Some genetic problems can actually skip generation. They remain dormant in a child, who's Father had the problem, and who's future children become "active" to the genetic anomelie.
Someone could have a Father with Alzheimers, not get it themselves, and then have one of their children get it, around approximately when they become 65-70 maybe older. Potentially the exact same age as the Grandfather did as well.
I can't recall the reasoning for this though, or why this inherited trait can be dormant, but triggered in future generations, or what are or is the trigger(s)

Assuming a child doesn't possess any genetic triggers for things like Neurological issues, a parent might get, I don't understand why a child of that person would get the grandparents issue.
Somehow that genetic trigger remains latent, in the middle of the three generations.
