If i come into contact with a male who has HPV on his penis but no warts were present is it possible i will develop warts on my penis or scrotum?

In brief: Yes

Hpv can be transmitted from infected individuals even if there are no warts present.
In fact, most hpv strains do not manifest as warts at all. Your best bet is to use condoms, although hpv transmission is not entirely prevented by condom use.
