I know this sounds a pretty stupid question to ask, but do male kits have nipples? I cant decide if something on my youngest is a 'spot' or his nipple! He had something similar a while ago which pulled off (ow) - does anyone know please?

Yes male cats have nipples, they can sometimes get discolored or crusty. But just leave them be, unless they are openly bleeding or oozing.

Hi Sasha, welcome to TCS.

Yes, male cats do have nipples, 8 of them, just like females. I'd recommend not scratching or pulling off a spot as I've heard of people trying to scrathc off a 'scab' not realising it was one of the cat's nipples! If you're concerned about the spot, a vet visit would be the best idea.

thanks! appreciate that. It doesn't seem to trouble him - he just gets fed up with me trying to see what it is.
