Critique my new Thoroughbred?

Hi, this is my first post, so pardon me :)
Here is my new OTTB gelding. He's 4 and 15.1hh. I know these aren't the greatest pictures, but they're all I have for now. Curious as to what others think of him :)

Hi, really need better/different pics to critique properly. Looks like the horse is 'camped under' in front, could indicate heel sensitivity - they won't be well developed at only 4yo. Looks like a bit of a 'hunters bump' or lumbar/sacro problem, but at 4yo will hopefully be easily treated by a good chiro or such.

I agree it's hard to really say with these photos. I think his back could be like that because he's so straight through his hip too. Good chiro is probably a great idea
