      He is at the "teenage" years, so he may be growing longer right
      now. Also - purebred oriental-type cats are by definition very
      thin, but muscular, cats.


      Is his vet worried about how he looks? Or his breeder? Can you
      see what his littermates look like?


      I would check that first, because as long as he's eating and
      playing, most purebred cats take a couple of years to reach
      maturity, and will not start "filling out" until they're about
      2 (unlike a cat from a colony, who grows fast and reaches full
      size by about 11 months - for survival).
