NO, quite normal: Both boys and girls are starting puberty earlier, likely due to many common chemicals in our environment that affect hormones. In the US the average age that boys start puberty is now 10. In India average is 12 1/2-13 but even age 9 is no longer considered abnormal! See http://olyaihospital.org/download93d6.pdf?file=4.pdf
