Likely true: I doubt if a 3 yo can either understand an erection or be articulate enough to describe the different sensations it will cause. The process can occur from birth until old age. If you comment at all it would be to encourage him to keep the issue private. (like toilet activities) If you respond to it in fear or embarrassment it confuses the kid.

I agree with the above, but even people with primary testicular failure may still have normal erection even with very low testosterone. This needs to be evaluated if your testicles were normal previously, the cause found and if possible treated!
