I made a doll body recently, without a pattern, and I really love how it turned out. However, I can't seem to wing a pattern for the head, I tried a few times, but can't make it work.
The doll is going to be a male doll, so I don't want the head to be too feminine. Any help would be much appreciated.

The only suggestions I can think of are to keep the lips a more neutral color, and consider a larger nose. I'm not much of a doll maker yet but I wish you all the best in this exciting endeavor - way to go with creating your own pattern!

I've never made a male doll, but if I did, I would try to make the jaw more square, and give him big masculine eyebrows and maybe a moustache or beard or some stubble! Maybe you could look for male dolls on Google images and see what other people have made and how they do it xx

I would need to know more about the construction of your head, ie. how many pieces. Is there a seam runing down the front? Is it a pancake or rag doll style? Or is the face flat with a gusset for the side of the head and chin? The previous comments are good, but if you want to alter the pattern, it would be good to know what the original looks like to have a reference to work from.

For the hair, I'd use fake fur -- you know, the stuff that looks like a skinned muppet. If it's still too long, you can always trim it.
