Default puppy to thin?

Hi there, Ive recently got my first german shepherd puppy Gunnar he's doing great...at least I thought until I went to the vet at 11 weeks and she mentioned that he was lean and I needed to feed him more. When I first got him he was 15lbs at 8 weeks and at 11 weeks he was 25lb. I feed him 3 1/2 cups of blue buffalo puppy large breed food. I thought he was a good weight. I can feel his ribs and spine but he doesn't look thin (could be because he's so fluffy). Are all puppies naturally lean or should he be chubbier?
