Self-similar properties of proton structure in the kinematic region of low values of the Bjorken variable x are introduced and studied numerically. A description of the proton structure function F2(x,Q2) reflecting self-similarity is proposed with a few parameters which are fitted to recent HERA data. The specific parametrisation provides an excellent description of the data which cover the region of four momentum transfer squared , and of the Bjorken variable x .
