Crown and middle area for transplant
You can transplant hair anywhere on the scalp, however it is important to be strategic about where the hair is transplanted. As future hair loss occurs you don't want to be left with islands or thin areas of hair left behind from the transplanted "permanent" hair. Having a specialist come up with a strategic plan fro your particular case is very important to make sure that you are getting the most value out of a hair transplant.
Transplant to crown
Yes,hair can be transplanted to the top of the head and the crown,actually to any area where there is a need.I'm sorry I don't know your age but generally we do not recommend transplants to the crown in men younger than mid-late 30's.We can't predict how much hair loss there will be in the crown and we don't want to have an "island" of transplants with an expanding pattern of loss surrounding that.Additionally,we want to ensure that there is enough donor hair to adequately treat the hairline and front of the scalp because that is where you get the biggest cosmetic and aesthetic change in appearance.
hair transplantation can be performed in the front, top and/or crown of the head without difficulty. In fact, it is often done that way

Transplant in Which Areas
There's very little limits as to which parts of the head you can transplant hairs to. You and your doctor should come up with a plan that allocates your donor hairs to the areas of your scalp that are in need.
