13.1 and 14 are just fine for TB colt. A lot of them slow down a little as they approach a year, then grow again as 2-3 year olds. Give him time. He's got some LONG cannons and a lot of space between his knees, so he's got tons of time and space to grow. You might try doing a string test on him. I don't know how accurate they are, but they're fun to try anyways xD
We have a TB colt who was 13.1hh as a new four month old. BIIIIG baby. He grew for a while, leveled out, grew some more, and is now about level again for now. His dam and sire were both over 16hh and he string tests to be around 16.2-16.3 I think. I believe last time we measured him, he was 15.2 and he's 19 months old now.
Adversely, we also have a TB filly who is 16 months old and sorter than your boy is right now, but she string tests to be 15.2. Granted, she was stunted, but not all horses grow at the same rate :)
Your colt is very handsome by the way. I love his color.
