That is normal ...: What you described about flaccid - erect penis represents the normal pattern & range of penile normalcy. If phimosis bothers you, you need to work with urologist to weigh on either conservative topical care or long-term definitive circumcision. Best wish .. Of note, many men with high discrepancy in penile length from flaccid to erect state may have thick mons pubis - which may vary with weight.

Yes, they are likely pearly penile papules which are situated at the base of the penile glans.

somewhat below average but fully functional. Enlargement does not work but regular use will improve your confidence. Your success is not defined by the size of your penis else the whale would be our Overlord. In fact, your size may even beat that of the pony-tail guy driving the Porsche ahead of you.

Not necessarily smal: Average flaccid penis has been shown to be about 3 inches in studies but that's just average.. I suggest you see urologist for exam and blood work
