There's a range of opinions on "the right/appropriate age." If you do a search on the forum under "neuter" or "spay" you'll find some interesting discussions like these.

FWIW, Chagall was neutered at 6+ mos on the advice of my vet. I have since changed my thinking, after doing some more reading, and would now delay until at least 1 yo, as his breeder suggested.
