The most important thing to look at is his overall condition, not a particular volume of food based on his age.
Is he lean but not overly skinny? When viewed from the side is there a tuck up at his abdomen, and a discernible waist when viewed from above? When you run your hands over his ribs, can you feel them without him seeming overly boney? If so, he's at a good weight for his size and eating an appropriate amount of food for now.
Puppies grow quickly and their caloric needs will change a lot during that time, so I like to do a rib check a few times a week. If puppy starts to feel a little chubby, I cut back each meal by a small amount until it feels right again. If the ribs are overly prominent, I increase each meal by a small amount.
