In brief: Any age

Very young children masturbate because it feels good.
It is just an issue to teach that this is an activity done privately .

In brief: Depends

There is no magic answer to this question but usually not until puberty starts.
The penis before puberty is not "equiped" to handle masturbation and may become very swollen and painful if the boy is per-pubertal. Patricio c.
