    I am not a biologist but will attpe[t an answer based upon internet findings. We are short-staffed in the biology area here.

    No, males cannot have Turner syndrome. Their Y sex chromosome prevents it from happening. Females with one X chromosome and NO fully functional second X chromosome get the syndrome.
