Boys penis foreskin development

My dh had an issue with his penis as a child. He could not pull back his foreskin and things became infected. He is worried our 10 year old ds could have inherited the same issue, but can't remember details. My sons penis seems like a regular tube, there doesn't seem to be anything that would fold back at the moment. I assume it is ok. Has anyone encountered this issue? I don't really want to cause ds any stress, but I don't know if we are being daft or not. Clearly I can't start searching for answers on the internet about this one. Any advice would be appreciated.

Has your dh/You ever asked him if he can pull anything back? Some don't retract until puberty
