That doesn't mean they had "overtaken" me it was more a case of they just come from a family where their genes mean more hair.

Likewise I have some chest hair and my dad has none. That doesn't mean his puberty stopped and I overtook him it just means his side of the family doesn't have as much hair and I must get it from my mum's side of the family. And yes, you can inherit male characteristics from your mum. Even characteristics that are not expressed in female because they are only "turned on" by testosterone are still there in the genes to be passed on.

So, androgenic hair, i.e. public, under-arm, trail, leg, chest and beard only grows under the influence of testosterone so getting any of those proves you have developed to a certain point and they do seem to follow an order but there is also the genetic angle so trying to judge your progress by comparing hair with others is a bit unreliable.
Ah ok, thanks. I think that ill get chest hair, though I don't mind if I don't get any.

I agree with others. I think it's more genetics than anything. I was an early bloomer. I got pubes at 12 or so and then had hair on my chest starting by 14. I'm 16 now and and have a hairy chest but all the guys in my family are hairy. But I know guys who are out of puberty and don't have hairy chests. So it's just the genes.

It's all down to genetics. Does your dad have a hairy chest? That'll tell you your chances

I was late developing hair, but I still really haven't gotten any chest hair at the age of 20. I do have a happy trail and pubes of course.

No. I was an early bloomer. I still have zero chest hair. But I have a big bush, and armpit hair.

Everyone develops that type of hair at different points. I am not sure if puberty has any effect on it

It is for sure a factor in it, but it doesn't indicate how far along you are, because there are so many other variables that all need to be considered. The tanner stages calculator is what does this. If you are worried about not having the hair that everyone else has, don't worry, puberty will come along for everyone and advance eventually.
