In brief: Around puberty age

Boys who don't have evidence of puberty by age 13-14 should be evaluated by their doctors.
A pediatric endocrinologist can help. If boys are known to have hypogonadism for any reason, they will need testosterone supplementation to go thru puberty. Not infrequently, constitutional delay of puberty may also require a jump start with low dose testosterone for some months.
