Is it normal to have a circumcision scar that is about 5/8 in. wide .2 mm deep???
Deep circumcision scar??
The circumcision scare is usually a brown band around the shaft some distance below the head. I don't know about its depth in the skin - I wouldn't want to find that out.
Sounds like the good doc gave you a bad quality circumcision. It's very sad and disturbing but this is not too uncommon these days.
lol i got a skin bridge man :-\

Heh I wouldn't complain about that. It would have to touch more nerves.

Being an L&D nurse, I see new circumcisions all the time, but I did not see so many after the fact. Over twenty years in this business has given me some sort of information to give you...
The foreskin is somewhat variable size depending on the person, baby, whatever. Penis size and genetics would explain that I guess. And each doctor has a different technique, etc. Summing it up, you can take more foreskin, or less...
I have seen some of the less ones later in the childs life, making it look sort of like the glans has a bit of a bulky turtleneck on... Can you visualize? I guess that might mean that the child as an adult would have more nerve endings left over from the extra foreskin remaining. Personally, when I saw it, I thought it looked like the doc could have taken a bit more, but maybe the kid as he grows up will tell you he has more sensation...
In your case, it sounds like the foreskin was mostly removed, giving the appearance of a wide area of scarring. It is sounding like most of the adult circumcions I have seen. Nothing unusual if all of the foreskin is removed. I imagine it could be stretching of the scar with growth as well...
Do I make any sense??
You are you and I am I and if by chance we find each other, it is beautiful. (paraphrased)
