Does tying your hair back in a ponytail all the time make you go bald?

Hey guys.

I'm a 17-year-old male and I had long hair for years, in which I tie back in a ponytail every day. However, I've always known that I had a pretty bad hairline for the past year and I was wondering if it could have been because of me tying my hair back too often.

I don't tie it back too tight and I use low friction hair ties, so could this be it? Here's a picture of my hairline:
