The padded out area of Centauri males is where their genitalia
(their tentesticles) are located.

Actually, Centauri have six. They extend out from the sides of
the body, and "fold" in over the solar plexus when not in, er, use.
(We actually saw one extended for other purposes in the first season,
"The Quality of Mercy.") Female Centauri have six...er...slotted areas
on either side of the spine, just above the hips, three on either side.

To go any further would probably bring in the FBI.

Nobody's what they seem around here...

As for the tentacles...well, there's no rules about showing
tentacles on TV. I think they didn't even want to deal with it. There
are some moments when they pretend they didn't see it, and I pretend I
didn't write it.
