How can I forward declare a struct/custom type in my include? I'm trying to write an include but it keeps telling me incomplete type or type not declared..

I do not have a .CPP to go with it.. I wrote everything in here as I have never written an include before. The problem is at line 57, MidPointBox. Also Am I supposed to use templates?

Types.h

```
