skinny?

Jaxx has been looking skinny to me. he hasn't been to the vet in a long time so I haven't talked to them about weight.
you can easily feel his ribs, and when he runs you can BARELY see his ribs. not anything extreme or whatever, but you can just barely see them when he stretches, or runs and stuff. I will post pictures if needed.

AND, sorry if it seems like I keep asking you guys questions lately LOL.

And this is him wet, if it makes it any easier to see. I'm just wanting to know how much to feed and if he looks slim? I want the best for him. He weighs 70 pounds at almost nine months old an is 25 in. Tall.

I cant really tell from the photos, he looks "slim" which is healthy in most cases but I cant get a good view if he is "skinny" and needs weight.

Jaxx is under weight. I caught a picture of his ribs peeking out here:skinny?-imageuploadedbypg-free1376929806.834629.jpg
I'm going to start feeding a little more than I am now.

I think he looks just the right weight
Does your vet say anything about it? If you are really concerned about his weight, you could try feeding him some dry food, or just more food than you are feeding him now. He's a cutie
