If you have a thin chest wall, it is possible that you may be able to see or feel your cardiac impulse.  There are 2 important things to know: 1) what is your heart rate at the time? is that heart rate appropriate for your level of activity?  and 2) are you otherwise healthy and free of symptoms?  If you feel fine and just see this, then likely you have nothing to worry about.  otherwise, if you are unsure, you can check with your doctor.
