Infants are born with foreskins that can not be retracted. The foreskin is attached to the head of the penis and forms a tight ring that keeps it from being retracted. As boys mature, the foreskin gradually become loosened so that it can be retracted. While it is normal for an infants foreskin not to be able to be retracted, it is possible for a boy's foreskin to start to re-adhere to the head of the penis. This is not a normal process. If your boy was able to retract his foreskin but it is now growing together again, you should see your pediatrician or family physician.
