He doesn't look all that thin to me. It wouldn't hurt to see a little more weight on him, but I wouldn't call him skinny.
I'm definitely seeing some sway back though, likely genetic since he's so young- so its good that you will be gelding him soon. Shame that he wasn't gelded earlier, so that the big bulky neck could have been avoided...I think it would have helped his over all presentation. Dispite the sway though, I do think he has a nice big hip, and straight (though light) legs until you get to his pasterns. The pasterns are too long IMO and his front feet look overgrown. Hard to see his shoulder, but it looks on the straight side to me.
Over all, not an aweful horse provided that his sway doesn't become sway (make sure you condition him right and fit his saddle well to prevent soreness) but he definitely needs to be gelded; the sooner the better.
I do really like his face. He looks sweet and the facial markings and color really remind me of our big foundation bred QH mare. She's much stouter than your guy though, and almost has too short of a back xD
