Stallion one testicle question

I HAVE A VERY NICE STUD COLT HE IS 2 AND A HALF NOW AND COVERED HIS FIRST MARE SUCCESFULLY, THE PROBLEM IS HE ONLY HAS ONE TESTICLE DOWN AND THE VET SAYS GIVE HIM MORE TIME HE IS STILL YOUNG. OTHER DOCTORS SAID TO PALPATE HIM, SOME SAY CUT HIM.

Sorry caps lock was on. Anyway he is a very important horse to us he has already recieved Three world titles ,multiple grands and reserves, point earner, money earner. He is an absolute amazing guy easy to handle, great manners on the ground, and undersaddle. He is a true blue roan to boot.

Has anyone ever seen it take this long 2 1/2 yrs.

Or has anyone ever heard of a procedure to bring the other down, If he is crypt I think I would just cry. So many people think you should geld a crypt.

Thanks for any input
Concerned momma..

The reason is because it is easily passed on. Regardless of rather it can be brought down the horse shouldn't be bred. He sounds like a very nice horse and he would make a fantastic gelding.

That is a genetic fault and he will pass it on to his offspring, whether they are colts or fillies.
Most say to geld him because there is nothing to bring it down, actually it would be unprofessional to falsly bring the testical down if it could be done, and since it is genetic, nobody with high standards will breed to him.
Why keep him a stud and use him if he is a chryptorchid? At this age, it WILL NOT drop down.
