I've been with my new boyfriend for a few months, both been STI tested and are clean, the issue is I've realised that when we have sex, he gets an erection but his foreskin doesn't retract. He still manages to 'function' properly. He's never spoke about it before, and I don't want to approach him about it if it's a common problem.
Is it common?

If it's very stiff and doesn't retract *at all* then it is something that he should get checked out by a doctor.

If it retracts some, just not a ton, then it might be totally normal for him.

If you approach him gently ("Hey, I've heard that it's a problem if the foreskin doesn't retract at all. Does yours retract at least a bit, because it's hard for me to notice?"), I don't see any harm in discussing it.

yeah like he gets a full erection and there's no retraction at all. I don't think its uncomfortable for him at all which is probably why he's never mentioned it.

There is a very very small hole in the end of his foreskin, probably only a centimetre in diameter.
