frets wearing out too quickly?

just got my RG1527 a week back ive been playing it about an hour or two a day and i noticed that the frets 12-17 are already starting to wear out i mean they seem kinda flat whereas the rest of the frets seem rounder like how they were when i got the guitar.Do they wear out so quickly i mean at this rate ill have to get it refretted in a month!!!!or is there something wrong with the set up or even worse the way i play?

That would indicate you have a very heavy hand

They're jumbo's, they can be leveled many times before they need to be replaced.

Lighten up

There's a member here, Rudy. 5 minites after i handed him a freshly setup guitar he handed it back. There was a kink on the b and high e strings at every single fret. I instantly put 10's on it just so he could get some string life
