I am not certain as to what your doctor means by the words 'retractable penis' but in many baby boys especially those who are a bit chubby the penis appears small and seems to be pulled back. This is due to a small fat pad around the base of the penis. With time this fat pad disappears and the penis returns to the normal size and appearance.I presume this is what your doctor means by the words retractable penis. If your son has this type of penis it is best to wait until the fat pad disappears before having any circumcision done.
