We all have it.
At somewhere, Long and at somewhere, short.
On someone, thick and on someone, thin.
On somewhat, gold and on somewhat, black.
When someone doesn't have it, and we laugh.

What is it?

    $\begingroup$ "When someone didn't [sic] have it"... implies that some people don't have it. The first line is "we all have it". Contradiction. $\endgroup$ – d'alar'cop Jun 2 '15 at 9:52
  • $\begingroup$ Oh well, sorry for that. I meant we all have it naturally, but you can cut or shave to make it disappear.. or someone just have it in somewhere on him/her, not everywhere as everyone.. ^_^ $\endgroup$ – Nai Jun 2 '15 at 9:57
  • $\begingroup$ Should "think" be "thick" or is this a reference to being near the brain? @d'alar'cop To paraphrase someone I know, riddles are all allusion, so wrong stuff is acceptable ;-) $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Jun 2 '15 at 9:59
  • $\begingroup$ @randal'thor Edited ^_^ it's "Thick" actually. $\endgroup$ – Nai Jun 2 '15 at 10:04

Hair

Although

Laughing at bald people isn't very nice :P

We all have it.

Everyone (or at least the vast majority) has hair somewhere

At somewhere, Long and at somewhere, short.

Some people have long hair, some have short. Also, head hair tends to be longer than, say, eyebrow hair

On someone, thick and on someone, thin.

Some people have thick hair, some have thin

On somewhat, gold and on somewhat, black.

Different people have different hair colours

When someone doesn't have it, and we laugh.

Again, laughing at bald people isn't nice. *finds bigger hat*

    $\begingroup$ The more important question is whether I have a black hat or a white hat, but I need at least two more logicians to solve that. Also, increasingly yes :( $\endgroup$ – LogicianWithAHat Jun 2 '15 at 16:57
  • $\begingroup$ This answer doesn't have an explanation either (though it is easy to see it is correct). $\endgroup$ – kaine Jun 2 '15 at 20:45
