Default Age to Neuter?

Hey, I'm trying to decide when to neuter my pup. The vet said 4 to 6 but that just seems so young to neuter. I definitely want my dog fixed, I don't plan to breed him or anything like that, I'm just trying to find out when exactly would be the best time to do it.

My two main concerns is one: him filling out all the way. Not sure if this is justified, but I want to make sure he fills out and gets that nice manly look(lol.) And two: waiting too long whereas he starts exhibiting some undesirable behaviors (such as marking territory, humping, and typical boy stuff.) I know these are all correctable, but if possible it'd be nice to avoid it altogether.

Hoping I could strike a nice happy medium here, I just want the best for my pup.
