Cannot tell from these photos
Gynecomastia implies an abnormal amount of breast tissue in a male. Sometimes this occurs as a diffuse fullness of fatty breast tissue, sometimes as a distinct nodule. If you do not have a distinct nodule, I would not think that you have gynecomastia that requires treatment.

You should meet with a board certified plastic surgeon to be able to get a formal diagnosis and to be able to decide on a course of treatment if necessary. I have attached a link to help you with your decision!

1. Experience matters. Choosing a surgeon increases the likelihood that they have seen a case similar to yours in the past. Selecting a surgeon whose practice is focused on gynecomastia exclusively is also an indicator of experience.
2. Results matter. The more before-and-after pictures, the better. Pay attention whether the surgeon is confident enough to show multiple angles of the same patient.

Gynecomastia surgery requires personal exam
