What does Holden have against bald men?

The bellboy is an old man with a combover who depresses Holden to look at. He says that he would rather be bald than comb all of his hair over to the side. He says that it was a “gorgeous” job for a guy around 65 years old to be doing, carrying luggage and waiting around for a tip. It shows that Holden does have compassion and certainly has an specific idea of what he thinks a person with a good life should be doing as an adult.
