When does a boy become baaligh

Q: I have two questions.

1. What are the signs of buloogh (puberty) in a boy?

2. I know a 14 year old boy who masturbated and a thick white fluid came out, would he be counted as baaligh?


1. When he experiences a wet dream.

2. Yes.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
