Blood flow restriction in section of penis

I have a section of my penis that does not fill with blood to the same degree during a semi erection, and this section is also thinner (squeezed in) often  in a flaccid state, particularly when it's cold.
The section is about a third of  the way down the shaft of my penis extending from my body,
I can describe it as causing a type of "hourglass" shape to my penis, but no where near the ratio of dimensions of an hourglass.
I think this is causing weakened erections, and less frequent morning erections.
Is it possible that an inner part of my penis damaged.?

The penis is one of the external structures of the male reproductive system. The penis has three parts: the root, which attaches to the wall of the abdomen; the body, or shaft; and the glans penis, which is the cone-shaped end (head). The opening of the urethra, the tube that transports semen and urine, is at the tip of the glans penis.

Your penis must store blood to keep an erection. If the veins in the penis cannot prevent blood from leaving the penis during an erection, you'll lose your erection. This is called venous leak. Venous leakage may occur with vascular disease. Venous leakage is also associated with diabetes, Peyronie's disease (buildup of scar tissue in the penis that leads to curved, painful erections), certain nerve conditions, and even severe anxiety.
