Welcome to just answer,

Mostly the foreskin of uncircumcised penis apperas to be shrinked when there is constriction of the male foreskin so that it cannot be pulled back over the glans of the penis due to a condition called phimosis,so you have to see a physician who can do a physical exam as this is a clinical diagnosis.
Other cause could be balanitis which leads to inflammation of glans penis and foreskin(perpusis) appears to shrink too ,which again is a clinical diagnosis,can be confirmed by a physician.
