Warts: As you mentioned, these can be warts. There are probably over 60 different strains of the virus that causes genital warts and some of these viruses are slow growing and may not change over time. These lesions can also be some other type of benign lesion as well. For definitive diagnosis, a biopsy is recommended. If these are warts, they are transmissable to your partner, even if they don't change.

Yes, go and see a dermatologist or a urologist.

Condylomata: Condyloma can stay the same size for years. Molluscum can also do this. Uncircumcised men can also get warty lesions on the crown that are just keratin overgrowth.

No: Absolutely not. It is completely normal for an infant to tug on, fondle or rub his penis once he's developmentally capable of finding it with his hand.

Nothing: There is no care necessary for a newborn's uncircumcised penis. Most times the foreskin cannot be retracted initially so trying to pull it back will result in pain and possible scarring.

No: Do not get into stretching exercises to enlarge the penis. Outside of the approved vacuum device to allow an erection, don't manipulate the penis to enlarge it. It is dangerous. Enjoy what you have and when it is worn out, we will see about getting you a new one.

See pedi urologist: An experienced pediatric urologist, or a reconstructive urologic surgeon with plenty of experience with urethral reconstruction, are probably the best drs. To deal with this problem. We advise patients that the urinary meatus should reach the the coronal sulcus (groove at base of glans) for satisfactory fertilility. Alternative is to do nothing if functions (urination & sex) are satisfactory..
