Time to call Pediatr: Might be a fungal infection, but should be examined. Call his dr for a "sick day" appointment to get it looked at and see what treatment is needed.

It's probably a normal secretion (smegma) trapped under a fold of foreskin. His pediatrician can show you how to clean the area safely.
