Hello,
Young males will start to masturbate once they discover their first arousal. This can naturally happen around the time of puberty – at 11/12 years of age, but it is not uncommon for boys to start masturbating at an even younger age.
It is simply a natural progression from playing and exploring your body. It all depends on the individual.

I hope this was helpful.
Have a great day.
