Thank you for your advise, and I will call the dr's office and see what they say

As far as i know that's pretty normal. The body regulates the temp of the testes by moving them closer and further away from the body. I imagine that they are retracting more inside due to being cold. I wouldn't worry as long as they drop into place as well as retract back up. I wouldn't hesitate to mention it to the dr. though at his next well visit or just give him a quick call and speak to one of the nurses. They are usually just as knowledgeable as the dr. about these sorts of things and can help to ease your concerns. Good luck, but I really think this is pretty normal. :-))
