you are probably not circumcised.If the skin is covering the glance of penis a white powder like substance gets collected in the groove ;it is called smegma .It gets collected over a period due to collection of few drops of urine.As a practice to maintain hygiene you can clean with water.There is no need to worry.

The white substance that you notice below the foreskin is known as smegma and it is a natural secretion. So if there is no itching or redness and it does not bother you in any way, just relax!!!
Keep the area clean by retracting the foreskin and washing with soap and water while bathing.
But if there is any itching or foul smell, visit your family doctor.

welcome to health care forum,
Both females and males produce smegma. In females, it collects around the clitoris and in the folds of the labia minora; in males, smegma is produced and can collect under the foreskin.
in males, smegma helps keep the glans moist and facilitates sexual intercourse by acting as a lubricant.

so nothing to worry, just relax and maintain hygiene....
