where to check for micropenis?

I'm concerned about my son's penis. It seems very small to me. Up until just the other day, however, I've not really been able to describe what's bothered me about it.
While changing his diaper I realized the shaft almost looks as if it's missing a part. I don't know if that will make any sense.

I found out about the micropenis condition, and what stood out to me is that low testosterone during gestation is thought to be a cause. I was still nursing my older kiddo during my entire pregnancy, so I'm wondering if that could have caused it.

I think my son may be too young to get this checked out, but if this seems to be an issue as he gets older, I would like to know if I should take him to a urologist, pediatrician, or someone else.

Yeah, definitely bring this up in your next Pediatrician appointment, if it's concerning you so much.
