Child having a problem in bowel movement after potty training. Psychological?

Our 3 year old son has never had a formed bowel movement . Since I ve potty trained him he s had issues pooping. His pop is a sticky substance and he will go only a tiny bit at a time. We had to put him back in diapers as he goes through about 8 diapers a day. He crosses his legs and stands in a corner and is definitely straining . We don t know if this is psychological and he is holding it in or if its something more? It is very smelly as well. Any thoughts? P
