Yes it is true that retained testicles will still be active.  But, at 4 months it is possible that they will still come down.  I would wait until he is at least 6 months old and then see if you are still having the issue. Many of male parts have still come down between 4 and 7 months.

If the testicles (both or one) stay retained (cryptorchidism) .  I would have a orchidectomy done.  This is where they go in and remove them (retained one or both).  The MAJOR reason for this is that it has been found that a testicle that remains within the body can become a mass and/or cancerous.

Hope that helps.
