Brief Answer: Too early to predict Detailed Answer: Hi It's too early to predict from current penis size in your boy. I suggest you not to worry and ensure proper breastfeeding for your baby. If it's really small which needs to be confirmed by a physical examination , then blood tests to rule out hypogonadism may be needed. Regards Dr Arun
