First I'm totally d'awwe-ing at how you hold his feet up :) so cute!
You seem to be missing one foot on the "after" feet. His toes were very long - looks like he did a good job trimming them back, it would be nice to see him continuing work on the horse, I don't see anything glaring.

is it normal to have such kind of retracted frogs (not sure if that's the right word, but I mean they don't stick out much) on the fronts.

This is your mini, right?

It's normal for him. I'm not around others horses to know much about others frogs. His frogs have always been like that.

And yes he's mine

Really hard to say from those pics sorry. Check out link in my signature for tips on critique pix. From what can be seen, looks OK except I would have backed/bevelled those stretched toes. Heels could be a bit high.

Did the farrier discuss diet with you? While it looks like the horse has pretty decent feet, you need to be very proactive with the littlies to prevent them getting too fat/IR/laminitic. Looking at the rings on the feet & stretched toes, I'd say there have been some changes going on already, but hopefully only minor ones.

I have to say, that is very sweet how you put his hooves in the palm of your hand!

I think he has beautiful little feet and they look good to me. I would have done exactly the same thing- take off the toe flare and leave the rest of the foot basically alone.
