Hi Chan
They foreskin only loosens at much later - don't worry about it. If the tip is red, you can put antibiotic ointment like Chloromycetin on the area. If the foreskin blows up like a balloon when he tries to urinate, he may need to see a doctor to stretch the opening under anaesthetic. You have been doing the right thing - only gently washing is needed.
