Appreciate the advice. Funny thing is, my buddy cut it and he definitely just used clippers. I thought he did a good job.
Regarding the part being wide...It basically came to improvisation when we decided to do it how it is. I have a scar on the bottom of that part and the angle was just a touch off. Rolled with it and told him to just make it into a bit of a point and I think it turned out good. I don't think it looks super wide but is wide enough for it to be noticeable.
You'll be fine my dude. Being that the sides of your hair are so short, it will grow very soon
