They don't have hooks so you would not see them. 4" huh..... that is kinda small. But anythings possible maybe he's a runt. How long you had him? And was he stretched out when you measured? How are you measuring?

Thats the sexual organs that develope at the end of his palps when mature. He has them meaning he is mature for sure.

As for your photos, go to photobucket.com.....its free and you can put as many pics as you want on there and then past them into threads on here.

Use the img code, its the last code you can copy below a picture that you add to photobucket. That will paste the picture directly onto the thread.
