Puppy weight

So Bane went in for his first check up he seems very healthy although he has diarrhea so we have started him on Metronidazole to help. After that the vet wants to get him started on his first shots (distemper/parvo). But during his exam his weight came in at just over 12 pounds (he is 7 weeks old) I thought this seemed low as the average usually (not guaranteed) is about 16 pounds. Is this wrong?
The vet did say he was very healthy so should I even be concerned? I feed him just under 1 cup 3 times a day. (currently feeding Nutro Ultra Adult) which he seemed to like for the first few days but now he doesn't... I'm open for suggestions here lol. But how much did your GSD weigh at 7-8 weeks old? Thanks for any advice

If he looks a normal weight ( doesn't look to skinny or fat) he is most likely fine.... Don't worry about the breed standard, every dog is different.
Do you have a birds eye view of him? That would help us know if he was under/over weight.
