This is normal. Many boys (and even grown men) do it because it feels good. The idea is to convince him that it is a private activity, something you only do when you are alone in your room or the bathroom. Good luck! Just remind him every time he does it where you can see that he needs to take it to a private spot.

That's normal he's probably just feeling and getting to know his own body,My experience with this my son at a young age that autstic was doing the same thing and still is but we tell him to do it in his room only without the other sibbling present. I hope this helps but it only normal and natural.cheers
