Boys can get erections at any age, and in fact it has been cited that babies still in the womb get erections. However, up until puberty, this is usually for different reasons.

Before puberty, young boys can get erections due to friction from clothes, or from "adjusting" themselves. However, once they hit puberty, sexual desire and arousal will influence erections,
