I have a question about my baby gerbil

you know how baby gerbils have the bumps across their chest's when they are born? my gerbil is 4 months old right now and I wanted to know how long does it take for them to disappear? also, how long will it take for his scent strip to appear and when will his testicals become larger?

I'm also confused about the question. Do you have pics of the "bumps" you are talking about?

hmmmm

ok

since i can't get a good picture of them i'll try to explain what they look like...

they look just like extremely tiny nipples and they are in the same places where nipples would be.they are pink and you can't see them unless you look under his fur.

the thing that confuses me is only gurl gerbils have nipples so why does my boy gerbil have tiny ones?

well his scent strip is starting to appear so never mind about that question. the little bumps seem to be getting smaller so maybe he just had them and grew out of them lol.
thanks anyway
but if any one can give me an explanation as to why my boy gerbil had/has nipples please tell me. ty
