inapropriate mounting behavior

Hi, I have a male maltese that is about 3 months old and it is only today that I realized that he is 'mounting' on one of his toys. What should i do? Should I scold him or ignore this? I plan to neuter him when he is older. Is he suppose to start this behaviour at this young age? Please advise me what to do. I am a little afraid to handle him now what if he start 'mounting' again? I love him very much, pls help me so that I will not be afraid of him. Thanks a million. Regards,
