This is not the best picture to see your younger hairs, but I can tell you that these light hairs are probably transitional if they have some length [>.5cm]. You will notice these hairs taking on more length and at some point getting some pigment. This is when they are going terminal and they will continue to darken until they become terminal. At that point, they will proceed to grow long.
Realize that these younger hairs will go terminal at different times. It is a process that allows your upper sides to become dense and colorful, just as your lower sides. This could take anywhere from 4 months to a couple years. This is where patience comes in and acceptance comes from knowing that your beard is heading toward maturity. Of course, you should be accepting your beardedness before this process completes... like any time now. In case you didn't notice, you are becoming quite bearded.

You are becoming quite full bearded with heavy coverage in the front and along the jaw, tapering to just a bit less coverage on the upper sides. Your cheekline has become noticeable and very high and it is this outline from bottom to top that is defining your full beard quite well. Early on, your sideburns seemed a bit weak, but now you have very consistent coverage from the top of one sideburn to the top of the other. Much of this is due to the fantastic trim job you are doing... keeping a consistent length is bringing out transitionals that are becoming terminal. You should continue to see this improvement as your beard just becomes very solid at this length.
Your neckline in the first picture looks a bit low but it doesn't look bad from the angle in the second picture. It is not a bad look with the lower neckline but I just want to point out my observation.
What are the next steps for your beard? Do you have goals? Are you starting to accept your beardedness? What do those around you think of your beard? You really should like the fact that you look 5-10 years older with this beard. Looking so manly and mature as 19 y/o is not the norm... but when you have it, you might as well flaunt it.

I think you are very smart to keep your beard trimmed as it fills in. You will see your beard mature nicely over the next 6-12 months and as it does this you will let the beard become part of who you are and have others accept you as being bearded. Somewhere along your journey to 12 months, your mental acceptance of this beard will trigger you to let it grow a bit longer. You will probably like what you see and then start your journey toward a long beard. Growing in this manner has a very high chance of success because you gradually accept your beardedness and others compliment you as you grow on.
Regarding genetics... you are not taking after your father because you have intense chest hair and a beard that will cover your face well. In fact, just about any picture you show us will be achieveable from coverage and length... although you might not have quite the same curls. Look to your grandfather's beards as the source of your genetics. You probably don't want to mock your dad, but you might want to be thankful that you have more than just his beard genes.

This is a good looking young man's full beard which is developing very well. It would help to know how long you have been growing because it seems you may have slower starters coming in the sides. Plan to keep this beard full [carving only the neckline] for a full 3 months and I'm pretty sure your acceptance of being bearded will come before that time.
Do not judge your beard from a distance at the early stages. Once the hairs get some length and those younger hairs join in, skin will become covered a lot better. Just imagine that the coverage along the jaw covers your sides in a like manner... then you will not see any skin under the beard... that is where you are headed but it will take time. I highly recommend you learn to accept your beard at this early age and have it become part of who you are. That will change a lot of things about you and hopefully, you are ready for that.
