In brief: Yes

If you mean he puts his hand in his diaper to play with his penis, this is normal.
I would not shame him but it is ok to give guidelines about when this behavior is ok (in private, in bedroom, in bath) versus not (in public, etc).

In brief: Happens All the Time

This is normal behavior. It should not be critized at all.
Teaching safety and privacy is something to take advantage of at this time.
