Looking for some advice regarding my silver cichlid

Hi all. I've just joined as I'm looking for some advice regarding my silver cichlid who's approx 8-9". I've noticed over the last few weeks that the genital papilla is prominently showing on him (I was told it was a male when I purchased him last year) and just above looks slightly swollen. Is this a possible health issue that is quite serious or is this normal as he's never 'had it on show' before. I've attached some pictures to show you what I mean (you might need to zoom in to see it better). Any help would be great as I don't want to lose this amazing fish. 🙂
