Was Jesus circumcised?

Yes, Jesus was circumcised because he was like any other Jewish male.  Remember, Jesus was a Jew and under Old Testament law (Gal. 4:4).  He was to be circumcised on the eighth day after his birth.  “And every male among you who is eight days old shall be circumcised throughout your generations, a servant who is born in the house or who is bought with money from any foreigner, who is not of your descendants.” (Gen. 17:12).
