Pupil "beats" on a friend

A friend of mine says his pupils are acting like heartbeats or like they breath, don't know how to explain. Any common issues that can cause this? He is about 16 years old.

These very rapid eye movements are called "Hippus" and are normal and most pronounced in the very young. They are normal
