    Neither. "Hair fall" isn't a thing.

    What sort/kind of doctors treat hair loss?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    When we use what, when, how etc as a question, do we not ask it with verb before noun format? Eg .Did he come? When did we come? How did he come? Which route did he use to come?

    Is it different if we start with "What kind"?

    What kind of government is there in China? The expected answer is communist or democratic.

    For the benefit of those who don't know the answer: a trichologist.

    I'm now wondering whether you have a trichologist, Rover, and what his or her name might be?

    I will be very grateful if you can give few example sentences.

    What kind of government is there in China? Is this sentence wrong? I can't see any other possible way of question.

    Poor Cole. Dude just wanted some hair back up top, but instead ended up shanked while trying to fill a Rogaine prescription in some sketchy pharmacy.

    Moral of this thread: Vanity kills.

    Also, the trichologist was obviously in on it. The profession doesn't even sound trustworthy. But at least it was a passive stabbing. Probably hurt less.

    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
