I am 16 years old: when erect only half of the tip of my penis shows. I was just wondering if this is normal? I thought that when your penis is erect that the entire tip is exposed, then when non-erect the foreskin retracts to protect the tip? Am I right or wrong?

One year of permanent retraction. The experience
We here at SELF give vaginas a lot of attention, which makes sense. But penises—including uncircumcised penises in particular—deserve their time in the sun, too. Why the emphasis on the uncircumcised penis instead of, well, all of them? Here are 11 things everyone should know about uncircumcised penises, and, as a bonus, some circumcision facts sprinkled in, too.
Q I am 29 years of age and have a very tight foreskin which I find very difficult to retract. It can be painful during sexual intercourse. I went to see my doctor and he diagnosed it as phimosis and suggested that I might benefit from a circumcision. What is a phimosis?
Just lately, when having sex with my girlfriend, the tip of my foreskin penis, I am uncut keeps tearing. There is no blood but it is a little painful. Small scabs appear and the skin scar tissue has got quite tight. I'm not in a lot of pain, but the scabs look a little offputting. I've tried antiseptic creams, but they were not good; with a hot bath I can gently stretch the skin and it seems ok.
