Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out. These can be Fordyce spots which are commonly found on penis at this age. They are not known to be associated with any disease or illness and are of cosmetic concern only. They are non-infectious and a natural occurrence on the body.

The other possibility is of vitiligo. Vitiligo is characterized by well-marginated milky white spots resulting from loss of melanocytes.

To rule out these three possibilities, your partenr needs to get an examination done from a dermatologist.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
