Default Male breeding

I'm in the process of buying another male. The thing is he has an odd looking penis. Is it bad for a male to have that? Will it cause problems for breeding?

This is one of those answers come in questions type of things.

Specifically, what is odd? His sheath or his penis?
Why is it does it look abnormal? 3 things happen in nature to cause something to be abnormal in animals. Illness, injury and genetic defect. Why is he different from the norm?
Will it cause issues for breeding? That depends on the other two questions I asked.
Could it cause issues for him, any female he would be breed to and his offspring?

Does he have a good pedigree? Is he from WHS free lines? Is everything else 100% perfect, if he is a baby you don't know that.
Depending on the extent of his oddity, my first though is his quality of life. That penis and sheath have much more important jobs than procreation.

Uhmmmmm.... No clue. IT appears to be missing any external parts.
Angles in the photos are giving me a totally different question.. Are you sure your looking at a male? It appears in the second photo that there is a slit just underneath why that is. Now granted I'm only looking at a photo, nothing in person.

Breeding may not be possible for this animal... More importantly why would you want to breed an animal that clearly has anatomical problems?
Before doing anything I would have an experienced vet or a team of vets do a full workup. Find out exactly why is wrong, what the cause is, how it will affect this animal through its life. I'd also want to see examples of where they are forming their opinion.

You never want to breed an animal that has any defects at all. By breeding an animal with a defect all you're doing is passing on the possibility of that defect appearing in the offspring. Only healthy, defect free animals should be bred. Breeding should be done to try to improve the species and breed out defects.

Ok thank you I do believe that it is a male. And I will just keep him away from my breeding females. Thank you for the help.
