Resolved Question:

I am 19, and this morning when I woke up, I noticed that my penis (while erect) was flat up against my stomach. However it was bending from about 1-1.5cm from the base. I was wondering if this is something that is natural or if it may be the result of a medical issue. There are no signs of injury, and it did straighten when I got up, any advice would be much appreciated.
