Hi there and welcome to justanswer!

Does your puppy appear thin?

Is he a picky eater?

Is he active and healthy?

He is a picky eater he shoud be much thicker i think
Even in French Mastiff's , there is a difference in metabolic rate that will cause one to be heavy and another to be thin. From what you have told me, it appears that your guy is healthy and much of what he is eating is going into his growth. He will not be mature until he is a year of age so much if the nutrients are being used up for growth rather than putting on weight.

be sure he is getting a good puppy food and tempt him with canned puppy food is he is a picky eater. Once he matures, he will gain weight.

Good Luck!
