Paediatrician

This may be a problem as it appears that your baby's testes are not present in his scrotum. It may be that they are what is known as 'retractile testes' and keep moving out of the scrotum. It would be best to consult a paediatrician about this as he may need a small operation to keep his testes in the scrotum.
