This varies: the age and speed of pubertal development is varied and many factors play a role in development . This is something that should be evaluated with a complete physical exam to assess the degree of pubertal development along with other growth parameters. A referral to a pediatric endocrinologist may be in order.

Is this length at penile flaccidity or erection? As Spirtos advised, looking into general parameters of mental and physical growth by a pediatrician is the right thing to do before jumping the gun to incite unnecessary emotional disturbance. In fact, he still has at least four years of time to grow.

A 21-year-old member asked:

Sometimes I wake up with a very firm erection that won't go away for quite a while. Is this because my bladder is full in the mornings when I wake up and it is pressing on my penis making it firm?

No: It is normal for males to have erections when the are asleep. Assuming you are not taking any prescription medications. One medication, trazodone, has frequently been associated with erections that will not go away (called priapism) (can happen with other drugs too). This is a urologic emergency and can result in permanent damage. If this just happens when your asleep, it's normal.
