If hair does not come in thicker why does it feel like it is becoming rougher? especially after i shave around my penis?

Stubble feels thick: Stubble (short hair that is regrowing after shaving) feels thicker to the touch than it actually is, which is why many people think that shaving will cause hair shafts to thicken. (it doesn't.) as the hair continues to grow and becomes more flexible, it will return to its normal texture.
