I think he looks normal as well. You want to keep him lean like that. He has a nice waist and you said he still has a butt. He is just still in that awkward preteen phase where he doesn't really have an adult body, but he not a puppy anymore (not his body anyways, his mind is another story). I bet when he is around 18 m/o you will start to see him get more of the characteristics of a big boy. If you are worried about his muscle mass, you can add in a raw egg daily and a small amount (4 oz) or raw meat occasionally, but the most important thing is exercise. Just like in humans.... if you eat a 2 lb steak daily.... you won't get muscular... just fat. So if you add in the extra Calories, make sure you up his exercise appropriately. You you add in an extra game of tug, add in a weekly off leash hike in the woods, go swimming somewhere.
