If your measurements are correct, his weight is just below the 5th percentile and his height is above the 95th percentile for his age. He will appear thinner due to his tall stature. It is good he is on a dense nutritional drink which gives him additional calories and protein. Suggest added ice cream to it for even more calories/protein. Give it to him in place of milk at all meals/snacks. Hoped that helped you.
