Customer Question

My 9 month old boy has never has an erection. There is some kind or abnormality with the tip of his penis but his doctor thinks it's just the meatus that's a different shape and should not be a problem as long as he's eliminating properly. My 3 year old has had erections from the time he was born so I find this odd, should I be worried? What could cause this issue?

Still no concern, at most you can schedule a sex hormone check for blood level any time his blood is drawn.
