My 2 year old son has what looks like a vein bulging out from where his penis starts. I'm not sure if that's what it is or not.

In brief: Probably normal

Many men & boys hav a prominent vein, called Dorsal Vein of Penis, starting at base of penis.
Not a cause for concern!

In brief: Vein?

It could be normal but if you are concerned about it show it to his pediatrician.
Good luck
