Brayg- I'm glad to hear the your son is not having any troubles due to the way his circumciser cut him.
Well, it's not "normal" to have any of his internal penis showing at all... so the fact that he does not have his internal penis parts aways exposed is more normal than a boy who does always have them exposed. It is very common for circumcisions to not look the way that people expect them to- what you describe is an expected outcome, one that frequently dissapoints parents and causes boys to have to endure even more surgery while people persue some artificial ideal of what a penis is supposed to look like- but no, it does not indicate that there is any sort of problem with the circumcision... it indicates that there is a problem with the informed consent process which allowed you to believe that a circumcision would return you a little mushroom looking cap miniature circumcised adult baby penis. (what most people think a circumision is!) This failure to communicate causes many boys a lot of pain, trauma, heartache and sometimes physical problems (in the way of additional surgery, adhesions and infections and erectile pain after tightening revisions)
There is no problem with your son... but there is a big problem with the people who circumcised him. I think you should think seriously about the informed consent process... that after taking part in sevral circumcisions you still were unaware of this possibility and how common this outcome is and what if anything it means. Today, there are parents being handed the same consent form that you were- unaware of the fact that their son's circumcision might not look like what they thinks a circumcision looks like, that it might make hygene MORE difficult than were he intact, that it might open him up to risk of MORE surgery than were he left intact... it will remove sexually unique structures and cause him a lot of pain in the first days of his life... the reason why this consent process is still happening the way it is is because people like you do not come back and call them on what they did... solicit a surgery from uninformed people. Someone needs to make these sleezeball profiteers pay for the deceptions they pass on to generation after generation of men.
You need to complain at every level- your OB, childbirth educator, insurance company, pediatrician, hospital, nursing staff, and your state medical board. You need to tell them that you did not know that this was a possible and COMMON outcome and that had you known you would have never consented... that you were never shown photos of circumcision outcomes or explained the AIM of a circumcision.
Here are four links to help you with your research:

Photos of circumcision problems- including adhesions:http://www.circumcisionquotes.com/complications.html
Photos of boys with seemingly excess skin after a circumcison baby and older: http://www.rogerknapp.com/medical/circ_incomplete.htm
Artists rendering of a circumcised penis (within a biased awful article)showing a typical "incomplete" circumcision: http://www.mayoclinic.com/invoke.cfm...C2A0B91919D578
As far as the luck of the knife goes- a boy with more skin is certainly a lot more lucky than a child who is going to be doomed to painful erections and a hairy penis after puberty because an overzealous circumciser took too much of his penis skin off.
So I just want to clarify- if you complain to the people in this story who let you down- remember, it's not the outcome you should be upset about- it's the fact that you were not INFORMED that this outcome was what you were consenting to.
