Brief Answer:
Please uplad photograph of your penis.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have curvature of penis downwards since birth.

I shall be happy if you can upload photograph of your penis in normal position and on erection and post me few more details to help me in making comments on your problem.
1) Is opening of Urethra in normal position (At the tip of penis )?
2) Do you have normal foreskin which can be retracted completely over glans penis?
3) Are you married and does it hinder you to penetrate vagina during sexual intercourse ?

If it is from birth it may be due to disparity between Tunica Albugenia on dorsal and ventral side causing curvature of penis .

In such a situation it has to be corrected by surgery only.Unfortunately there are no other means to correct it.

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions ,
I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.

Brief Answer:
Need to consult qualified Urologist for evaluation

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for uploading photographs ,No doubt that you have penile curvature pointing downwards .

It seems to be due to disparity of Tunica Albugenia between dorsal and ventral aspect of penis..

It will not get corrected by any medication oil,cream ,exercise or device like penile extender
The only treatment option is to get corrected by surgery which consists of shortening the Tunica Albugenia on dorsal side by a procedure called Plication .This will give 100 % results and make the penis straight.

Please consult qualified Urologist for further treatment.

Please do not attempt any of these methods as there are no chances of getting positive results .

Thanks and Regards.

So the purpose of Plication is basically they are placing correction sutures in to penis dorsal , right ? , so is that suture will stay there all the time ? and is this is a safe method ?

Thanks

Brief Answer:
It is the only treatment.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for follow up.Plication is the only surgical treatment that is advised for this problem.The suture remains in penis for life long but it is harmful and can not be noticed at all as it is beneath the skin.
Thanks and Regards.
