You do want to be able to retract your foreskin to clean your penis. If you can't it's worth talking to your doctor about it.

Some people find it easier to retract their foreskin in the bath or with lubricant.

Don't overthink it - it's not any major threat to your health but you do want to get it sorted out.

You should be able to retract your foreskin in the bath to clean under it thoroughly, smegma does not go on it's own and can cause nasty skin irritation.

If you can't retract your foreskin in the bath then I would ask your doctor for advice. Don't be afraid, they will have seen such things before many times.

You need to be able to clean under the foreskin for hygiene reasons. They can do a couple of small operations to sort this kind of problem.

There is an alternative but I do not know what it is called or how it is done.

You do not want to be living with a foreskin you can't retract and clean under, smegma is a breeding ground for bacteria and foreskin that is too tight could make sex painful. Not only that but your partner(s) won't want to be anywhere near it.

No need to be nervous, it is not an unheard of problem and the doctor will be able to give you better advice than me. It will be sorted one way or the other.

Yes they'll likely give you a steroid cream and encourage you to practice retracting your foreskin.
