I've asked about this before, but that was more than six months ago, and I just really want to check in and make sure this is okay.
He's 3. I think he's probably at least partially retractable; I once found him partially retracted, after he'd been "fiddling," and I put the foreskin back gently. I've never attempted to retract him myself, and I would never.
Anyway, what I see when I look at him is that the foreskin seems to be really loose on one side, and tight on the other side, and hangs unevenly, KWIM? I don't have a lot of words to describe it. Anyway, what happens is that the opening in the foreskin actually winds up pointing sideways, towards the "tighter" side. So when he pees, the stream goes at a 90 degree angle to his penis. And it's annoying for me, because he hits the wall or the floor rather than the toilet. But I can live with that--- I'm teaching him how to compensate by holding his penis a bit sideways.
I guess what I'm really wondering is if this is something normal, or if it's something I should be concerned about, the fact that he pees at an angle.
Edited to add: As an infant, he peed straight. This is something that I've noticed probably since he was about 2 1/2. Before that, the foreskin was a lot tighter-looking.
