Hi there,

he is young to have it in his posession, but he is clearly becoming curious about sex. It would be helpful to buy him a book about the facts, and there are a number of these available. It would also be a good idea to let him know that he can talk to you (and or his dad) if he has any questions.

It is important that he feels ok about being curious, and if you provide him with the facts then this will help him now and in the future when he becomes sexually active and importantly to stay safe.
