Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

Well, if either you or your boy friend had a previous partner infected with HPV but not showing any symptoms then yes, it is possible that your boyfriend caught the infection from a previous partner or from you, and the symptoms are visible only now. Please consult your doctor regarding this and run tests to see if you have the infection. Hope this helps. Take care!
