I bet you're fine: A majority of the men you'll see in pictures online are circumcised, and you've got "something extra" that will look different whether you're turned on or not. Don't compare yourself -- this is good advice in any case. If it works normal, then enjoy your developing body -- responsibly of course. If dad's a reasonable guy, this might be a good time to chat.
