What is your ? : Do you know his Tanner Stage of Sexual Maturity? Are you asking if he should be able to retract his foreskin fully or if his erect dorsal penile length from the base to the tip is within normal limits? Yes, a 4" erect dorsal penile length is fine for age 14. Please add these details or take him to his GP if he is worried. See: pediatric-house-calls.djmed.net/puberty-tanner-stages-boys/.
