He's probably pulling too hard on the leash.

I wouldn't worry about it too much, although they can hurt their throats if they pull too hard.

Can you try a different collar, halti, Gentle leader or a prong to see if it helps? I'm not crazy about Halti's or GL, as they can rub and get into the eyes, and the dogs often object to wearing them, but they are one alternative to a prong if you arent' comfortable with them.
