Hello, Sorry about this sign. If he has increase in length of penis and size of testes, and there is pigmentation, please consult a pediatric endocrinologist. He may be having premature puberty change. Due to abnormal secretion of sex hormone from adrenal glands, this can occur at early age.

There may be altered hunger, thirst, or weakness of legs etc. also.
