It's only been 2.5 weeks... It SHOULD take quite some time for a horse to gain real muscle, and not just fat (think months here, not weeks). You need to ride him more and encourage proper rounding of his topline and drive from underneath himself. That will help build topline. You could also lunge him with side reins set low, for 10-15 minutes at the trot with bursts of canter, 2-3 times a week.
