Is Tempy fat or just big?

I weighed Tempy this morning and he weighed 623 grams. By contrast Buddy, who is about a month younger, is only 377. Tempy is physically larger, probably 50%, and he's pretty active when they're out during free time, so should his weight concern me or is it just a number? How do I know if he's fat or normal for his size?

I just measured him and he's 11" from nose to the base of his tail. By contrast Buddy is only about 9"
Unfortunately weight doesn't tell you much, can you get photos of him, ideally stretched out running, lying down and standing up
