Circumcision is the removal of the foreskin, and yes, it's usually pretty obvious whether he is cut or uncut. In a flaccid state, the foreskin (usually) covers the head (glans) of the penis.

There's a few words on circumcision here

I have yet to meet a C compiler that is more friendly and easier to use than eating soup with a knife.

The three most dangerous things are a programmer with a soldering iron, a manager who codes, and a user who gets ideas.

If there is a retractable fold of skin over the top, then he's uncircumsized. If he just has smooth, taut, purply skin, then he's circumsized.

ok... well i have this friend who had the exact same question a little while ago... after showing her pictures in a book, she came up with the very true idea that a circumcized penis' head looks like a mushroom. SO go with that if all else fails!

Yeah, I would think it's pretty obvious.
