Does this look like the problem I seem to have?

It looks quite general but is also presnet on the glans penis (head of the penis)... it is itchy , blistering or has any discharge?

apologies... is it on the head of the penis ??

What can it be common for other peoples too look like that also then? It’s not on the head of the penis, seems to start just under the head and then works onto all the scrotum area, no itchiness blistering or any discharge

It appears that you have Fordyce spots which are nothing to worry about.

Fordyce spots are whitish-yellow bumps that can occur on  your penis or scrotum if you're male or your labia if you're female. The spots, also called Fordyce granules or Fordyce glands, are enlarged oil glands.

Sometimes Fordyce spots cause anxiety but they are completely harmless whether on the lips or on the genitals. They are not a sexually transmitted disease and they are not infectious

Fordyce spots generally fade in time without treatment. The important thing is to realize they're normal. They aren't a disease. The majority of people have them.
