Mental health question concerning teenage son's behaviour

Hello everyone. I have a concern about my son and am wondering about opinions of whether to discuss this with his pediatrician. For several years now, (he is 15 now) I have been finding numerous stuffed animals with holes torn into their bottoms that have obviously been masturbated into. I did confront him briefly, not really knowing what to say or ask? His father is unsure of how abnormal this is and has spoken with him also. The stuffed animals have begun to become more hidden now. I find them in the woods behind our house, in storm drains, in hidden places in the yard. Im not understanding this and seems weird to me. Thank you for any advise or opinions about this! Im really worried. I also wonder if ADHD is an issue with him, although a seperate issue. There is mental illness in our family. As his mother, I suffer from severe depression and anxiety. I worry about the various ways mental illness can be genetic. Thanks again!
