What do you think guys of my 13 months male puppy?

Hi to all members of the group. Here is Oscar and he is 13 months old . He is 34 kg (73-75 pounds) but he seems skinny to me. What do you think ? Any toips for gaining some weight? He is on almost raw diet (slightly cooked) and Royal Canin Kibble from time to time. Thank you for your comments in advance.

He seems to be a healthy weight at that age.
He is still very young, he has a lot of filling out to do. They all go through the tall and lanky stage.

If you are worried about his appetite I would consult a vet and rule out a medical problem. Personally I think he looks fine, I would not be adding any weight to this dog especially at this age. You could increase exercise and build muscle.

He looks fine to me in the pictures. Maybe he doesn't have a strong appetite because he's at a healthy weight and he's just not hungry?
