The GSD standard allows for quite some variation in size. You may just have a small puppy that is on the lower end of the standard. What you feed should be enough - if your pup is healthy, active, happy, and eats well, then I wouldn't worry about his size.

He may still put on 10 to 20 lbs as he matures, so that would bring him to 65 lbs which is a normal size on the lower end of the spectrum. I know some pure-bred females that are barely 50 lbs - so though small, nothing abnormal about your pup.
