Can I claim myself as a dependent?

No one will be claiming me on their taxes, I'm 21 years old and made enough money to support myself and my girlfriend and our daughter. I am already claiming my girlfriend and our child that was born in 2016 and am wondering if I can go ahead and claim myself too since no one else will?
