In brief: Should be retractile

Retractile foreskin is healthier, cleaner and functions better for sex.
Alternative to circumcision, is prescription strength steroid cream such as Betamethasone or Kenalog (triamcinolone) applied twice daily to constricting phimotic ring whils retracting foreskin. Try it for 1 - 2 months. Circumcision or prepucioplasty (vertical cut sutured transversely) would then be indicated if cream is unsuccessful.
