Definitely normal, and I always told my kids it was yucky - after all, they go potty from there. After a few months of telling them that they don't bother with them anymore.

He is a boy and he just discovered he has 'bits', of course it is normal.

The best thing you can do for him right now is pretend you don't see it most of the time, but if he seems unusually interested in them and doesn't leave them alone tell him that if he plays with his genitals too much they could get sore. Young children can have incredibly dirty fingers and if he plays with his genitals with dirty fingers he could get an infection.

You'll find as he grows older you wont notice it as much, because he will start learning how to hide it from you, lol.
