19 year old, depression, genitals not developing. Normal blood results. Advice?

Hello. my son just turned 19. He told me very recently that he has been depressed for awhile. He says he is worried that he may never get a girlfriend or have children because his genitals are not developing. I made an appointment with his doctor the next day. She chatted with him and ordered blood work. He returned to see how the results were and everything appeared normal. She basically told him to keep busy and active so he doesn't think about it too much. Should she not have done an examination? I'm really puzzled about that! I thought she may even refer him to a Urologist. Should I seek another opinion? I take this very seriously!

HI
Thank for asking to HCM
You have stated here that "Genital" not developed, here the chances of misunderstanding of your boy is very much likely, near him the size of it may be much bigger than what he sees, he must have been wrongly informed, better to see the urologist to clear this, or second possibility,,, he may be right, both the condition should be satisfied, take care of him bye.
