boys penis

i have two obese boys age 6 and 14 both have their penises that stay "hidden" to look at them the look as if they have a normal scrotum without an actual penis. they have no trouble urinating have not had any complaints of pain. is this normal with being overweight or could there be another condition causing this? also if anyone had this does it go away? furthermore when you forcibly cause there penis to come out they are small in size what is the normal penis size for this age group?

Hello,
What your boys seem to be having is hidden or buried penis which is quite common in obesity due to the suprapubic fat covering the penis. If the boys are nor having any problem urinating, then there is nothing much to worry about. Losing weight or fat reduction by surgical approach in later life can help. Give a healthy, nutritious diet and ask your boys to exercise regularly. If the symptoms persist then a urologist should be consulted.
I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
