You're going to get a mixed bag here, most of it opinions, a few studies bandied about but personal experience is best.

At his age, it would not harm him at all to be neutered, no, and that's my opinion but also after doing the past 6 yrs. as a rescuer and neutering hundreds of male dogs.
Even if he "looked" a bit more feminine (and again the jury is out on that, genetics play a larger role than neutering) is that a decent trade off for cheaper licensing and perhaps even avoiding some of those nasty "boy" behaviors like marking his territory?
