I keep getting stretch marks, is there a way to stop it?

I'm in my twenties, male and have been the same weight so it can't be anything to do with any of that, so could they be any reason why I still keep getting stretch marks?

Drug use particularly steroids Cushing's disease and conditions associated with abdominal distention can lead to the formation of stretch marks. These are just some of the causes. Each condition can present in its own distinct way for example a patient who has recently undergone bariatric surgery or a pregnant lady that has recently delivered a baby will both have stretch marks in most cases.
