If the addressee is the father's brother, he can be addressed either "shu shu" or "bao bao" depending on whether he is the father's younger or elder brother. If he is the mother's brother, then he is addressed "jiu jiu" regardless of whether he is a younger or elder brother. If the addressee is only a cousin of the father or mother, then he would be addressed 袱, again depending on whether he is a younger or elder cousin.
