From looking at the pics of your dog, his legs look fine. Older puppies can be a bit leggy until they grow into themselves. As long as he is walking etc. ok he is probably just growing too fast for himself to keep up with! As he gets older, he might change the way he sits or could sit like that forever without any problems. If you are worried, maybe bring him to your vet to have a good look at his hips and knees.

He's very cute :)

They do get out of proportion for a while, Cassie's four months now and still sitting right back on her bottom with her back legs stuck out...she looks such a baby when she does it!! lol

Love my Cavaliers

My nine year old Oliver still sits like that sometimes. He's done it ever since he's been a puppy. He's a big boy and it looks pretty funny. Lots of puppies sit like that though.
