What do 16 and 18 HPV types look like in men? Is it very hard to see?

In brief: Invisible

Hpv subtypes 16 and 18 are not known for causing genital warts, so it is unlike you will see anything on an male infected with these viral strains.

In brief: Nothing

If/when you have these strains in your system you will have no outward signs.
However, you will be able to spread them to sexual contact if/when the virus is in an active phase.
