Answer

In the posterior midline of the prostatic urethra there is a groove called the urethral crest, surrounded by bilateral vertical ridges that are the urethral sinuses where prostatic glands drain. The verumontanum is a widened protrusion of the urethral crest, where the ejaculatory ducts drain bilaterally.
