This is perfectly normal and happens from toime to time in little boys.It does ot have any sexual aspect to it. Do not be concerned.

Hi Siphiwe,

My 4 year old son also has regular erections. I think they are self-exploring and when they touch themselves, the blood rushes to that area, causing the erection.

Try not to be alarmed as he will think it is wrong to touch himself.
