Default Puppy growing slow

So at puppy's first vet visit he was 9 weeks 2 days and weighed 16 pounds. The vet thought he would grow to be between 80 and 90 based on growth charts.

Since then he had to go on some antibiotics for congestion. He really didn't gain any weight the first week we had him. He's gained about 5 in week 2 and 3.

He had his second vet visit today and the vets growth chart now days between 55 and 65? He is 21 pounds now and will be 12 weeks on Monday (2 days).

I have one GSD that is very very small and I'd really like for him to be a bit bigger (average normal GSD size at least). Of course I will love him either way. I kinda think he will catch up and maybe is just starting slow.

What do you guys think?
