Hey, dude. Starting puberty at 16 is considered "late normal" but as long as it started you're fine. (I didn't start until I was 16 too).

There is no connection between soft size and hard size. In fact, guys who are smaller when soft usually have a larger percentage increase in size when erect. In other words, a guy like you can have a 2 inch flacid penis that grows to a 7 inch erection and a guy with a 5 inch flacid penis might have a 6 inch erection. That's why we shouldn't compare ourselves to other guys in the shower. And, if the only other erections you've ever seen are in porn, forget it. Those guys are in the movies because they have abnormally large penises.

The average adult erection is about 5.8 inches, so you're larger than average.
