Brief Answer:
normally seen in many young males

Detailed Answer:
Hello sir, thanks for trusting health care magic.
It is common and seen in young boys very often.
The mound below the nipples if normal and not like a female breast then nothing to worry.
It will get normalize or at least start getting normal after 25 years of age.
Do not try to press on it every time and just ignore it as we do to any other normal body part.
Take care
