Kindergartner Jackson was feeling nervous about his new look, so that’s when his best friend Jordan stepped in.

Jackson has something called has alopecia, a medical condition that causes hair loss.

His hair fell out. It was only two weeks ago that he had a full head of hair.

“Sunday night it was really bad. There were lots of tears and I was nervous. He didn’t know what the kids in class would think or say,” said Arine LeStrange, Jackson’s mother.

His buddy, Jordan, had an idea. He would make sure that Jackson wouldn’t be the only bald kid in class, so he shaved his head as well.
