I think he is fine. Doctors can over do it. I had a doctor tell me that Nicole was overweight and I just laughed at him. Her regular pediatrician also thought he was off and told me not to worry at all.

He does look a bit chunky but that is typical of this age and as long as he is following his growth curve nothing else matters.   Just make sure he eats a balanced diet and gets lots of time to run around.   I had the underweight child who would not gain weight no matter what  LOL.

 He is a little chubby but obese no. I think Doctors want stick thin children running around now. That said my children were considered too skinny most of their lives. They weigh a little more than they should now. My youngest DS is in the normal weight and height area. I think he is to thin.
