Should I convince my balding boyfriend to shave his head? ...How?

That's basically it, but here's a bit of bean-platery if you like:
First off, I love every bit of my boyfriend and would much rather not bring up this issue at all than have him become upset. He's not easily offended, but I'll just let it go if enough people think it's too hurtful/not worth it.
I think he's (understandably!) having a hard time accepting the fact that he's going bald in his mid-twenties. He also doesn't see that the way he's used to wearing his hair isn't helping him, either. He gels a floom into the front (think Fry from Futurama), and while I think he sees a bit of faux-hawk action going on, it kind of accentuates his receding hairline and his bald spot becomes viewable from the front. I think he's just attached to that hairstyle.
If I'm going to bring it up, I want to be as tactful as possible. My only idea is to climb onto his lap while we're watching Star Trek TNG or a Bruce Willis movie, playing with his hair and giving him lots of kisses, then saying something like "Hm. I never noticed before, but you'd actually look really sexy if you shaved your head. Make it so." (Okay, not really the last part. Or maybe?)
He's a stylish dude with a good look -- I think he could really rock the bald thing. So I guess my question is two parts: a) Should I just let it go? b) How can I make him see that a shaved head would look so much less "I'm balding" than his bald spot?
