Piece of foreskin stuck to glans

My ds is 3.5yrs and he can completely retract his own foreskin without discomfort except for a tiny area on the topside of the glans which remains stuck together. I'm not referring to the normal frenulum on the underside, this area is on the top side quite low down near the base of his glans. Will this eventually come away by itself or will it need a procedure to free it?

He has got years before this is an issue. Some don't retract until puberty

robbers.jnr is way ahead of the curve, why do you need to look?

Pardon? He does it himself in the bath, it's not an inspection! My question is whether it will separate naturally in time or not? If you can't add anything useful don't reply

It's not supposed to yet. I don't know when it is, but not yet.

It will come away by itself over time.
