Default GS puppy's neck

OK this is my first GSD so don't laugh at this question! My 9 month old male has this huge flap of loose skin under his neck-like a turkey's goozle! Is this normal? Will he "grow into it?"

Relax - normal. 9 months can be an awkward age. So - as he grows it will look better.

Some GSDs have very loose skin in the neck area. He may or may not grow into it, but it is nothing to worry about.
