My ds is 2 (turned 2 in Oct.) and his foreskin seems to be beginning to retract. I thought this seemed a bit young? I am not concerned about it at all just curious if this is young, and if there is anything I should watch for etc.? Thanks for any info! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>

It may be just a wee tad younger than average but absolutely not unusual. By some research, there are some boys who are retractile shortly after birth. I question if that is true or if these boys have been forcibly retracted but we have had several mothers who report their like aged sons being retractile<br><br>
There is nothing you need to watch for. Well . . . . We've had some Moms here who report that their son's like to put things inside their foreskins. :LOL I doubt there would be any harm from that as long as he's not putting something dangerous in there.<br><br>
You may also find that while the foreskin opening is relaxed and able to be pulled back that there are still some remaining adhesions that will eventually disolve and those will prevent complete retraction for a while.<br><br><br><br><br>
