Yes, he looks like he may be a little underweight. Not at all drastic though, so I'd start out getting his teeth done, wormed & on a good, healthy maintenance ration, free choice hay for eg. & see how that goes first.

In the picture it looks like he may have dropped fetlocks in back? If so you may not want too much weight on him.

If he's the bay in your album that you have laying on the ground and jumping the blue barrels, he looks more under muscled than underweight.

That's not bad. Free choice hay and a little work would probably do the job .
I'd add feed if it is needed.

I also agree with this. I would make sure to get a PPE (Pre-Purchase Exam) done by a vet before commiting to buy.
DSLD is not something to mess around with and certainly not something you want to have on a horse you're thinking about purchasing.
