Normal to not grow lots of pubic hair and you are 16 and male?

Lots of factors: Puberty is measured in males by more than pubic hair. Testicular & phallic size, muscle mass, facial & abdominal hair all are signs of a maturing male. Your genetics also play a powerful role in when you go through puberty & how fast you do it. Genes also determine how hirsute (hairy) you will be.
