I believe I have a "twisted" penis. Don't get me wrong, it stands up perfectly straight, but when looking at the glans, it is crooked, about 45 degrees across the penis. The penis head is at an angle. It looks like this when it is both hard and soft. (I am circumcised.) It's not painful but it will make me very self conscious once I become sexually active. I've been masturbating for about a year and a half, so it may be the result of this. I don't remember what it looked like when I started masturbating.
This is actually fairly common, and nothing to be embarrassed about. Sometimes as the penis is forming, it does twist a little. As long as the urine comes out straight and the erections are reasonably straight, no problem.
