This seems to be the place to post a penis question! My DS is 8 weeks old and I'm noticing that his penis points more to one side. Is this normal? Or is it possible to have his foreskin tighter on one side than the other (thus pulling it to that side?)<br><br>
Should I worry about it? I don't really want him to have a crooked penis...

My ds's lays to 1 side more than the other. The way I understand it almost all men's lay to one side or the other. Is that what you mean? Or do you mean the tip curves up and not the whole penis?

Good thing to clarify...the <i>tip</i> curves to one side.<br><br>
He's 8 weeks old, I haven't seen him erect. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

Is it the foreskin tip or the glans that are a bit croocked? If it is the foreskin then that is totally normal.

If it's just the foreskin it's normal. My DS has a long foreskin and for the first 12 weeks it was pointed UP, and he pee-ed on his face several times, poor boy. He did at 6 weeks, pee on the doc too, she thought he was going to poop since he was grunting, she was going to "peek" at his penis real quick before he pooped, so she pulled down his diaper and WHAMO! Pee! I laughed so hard I almost pee-ed!<br><br>
Sorry that was OT, but I just remembered that. Hehehe.

My DS is 1 years old and sometime the little bit of extra foreskin at the top (the skin that actually overlaps the glands) folds sometimes and it is totally normal and completely harmless, i HIGHLY doubt your son has a natural "bowed" or curved penis, of course all penis' are going to curve a little.<br><br>
Congrats on your intact baby boy BTW, YAY!!!

Phew! I think it's just the foreskin that is off to one side. Can't see the glans to know for SURE, but that seems right. That makes sense, and thanks for the reassurance that it's normal.
