I shaved my mustache once and I seemed to look incredibly ugly. I don't know why people are insistent on the fact that teens shouldn't shave but I do have to agree that it is unpleasant to see.

I'd like to know if I should shave and what is the best way cuz I might b be doing something wrong?

Thank you for your answers

Isn't that what dads are for? To show you how to shave?

I guess some teens get acne, though, so got to be careful...

My dad tells me not to shave whereas literally everyone tells me to do so

He believes that it'll grow longer and I'll have to shave every week

If by longer he means faster, then yes it will grow faster, but only as a result of puberty. Shaving will not cause it to grow faster. It will, however, remove the baby hairs meaning that it will grow through looking thicker (but not necessarily being thicker) than it did before you shaved.

Well if teenage girls are told to shave then so should teenage boys.

I hate it when people say this. It’s just a myth but so many people believe it and are so scared to shave because it will grow back faster and twice as thick lol

Please do shave.
When i was in high school a lot of guys thought they were cool if they didn't shave. But it looked disgusting on most of them.
When you're young your beard growth is limited and you probably have really thin and few hairs. It looks stupid and immature.

Mustache doesn’t generally look bad, but you can either fully accept it and embrace it, or shave it all. Puberty-mustache is usually not all-out mustache, and it might not look that nice (but you might look awesome in it, I don’t know). If you want to cut it, and you feel like it would make you more confident about how you look, nothing should stop you. Be careful though if you don’t know how to use a razor properly!

Do what you want. Shave if you want to or shave if you don’t. In any case your dad should’ve taught you to shave by now and it’s a good bonding experience too.

Most guys who are older shave every week and some shave more than twice a week so that’s something to bear in mind. At the moment it’s unlikely you’ll grow a lot of facial hair so do as you please.

Yeah i think us dudes look weird with facial hair as a teenager. To me it kinda makes it look like the guy just doesnt know how to groom himself.

Shaving takes less than 3-4 minutes every few days, so how would it be an issue in the slightest?
