A 20-year-old male asked:

Im 20 & saw a urologist a month ago. he taught me how to clean my uncut penis correctly. i've gradually peeled back foreskin (painful at first) since. im now fully able to peel it back & expose head. however, the backish part of the head is purple?

Glans Penis: The head or Glans penis is normally darker at the back part where the skin attaches to it (the frenulum), and will appear purplish. It is nothing to worry about.
