Yes, newborn swelling of that type would be normal, but he is 6 weeks old and it is just now swelling today - and it is not his testicles/scrotum. My boys both had huge scrotums for the first couple weeks, and so did my nephew. That went away, and now this swelling is happening. Could it be something else?

The only concern is that many doctors insist that they won't retract then proceed to do EXACTLY that! The forum is full of stories of this happening to children, even after having a detailed discussion with the parent not to do so.
I agree. I must say that she should be right next to the baby and to be prepared if she might need to slap a hand.
