First cavalier - does this look normal?

Hi everyone - we have purchased our first cavalier from a breeder and recently received pictures where the body shape looks off to me. The sweet girl is the runt of the litter and expected to be pretty small which is all okay with us! I just want to ensure anatomically that her hips/legs/shoulder ratio are right - could be the camera angle but something looks off. Thank you!

Hi, It's very hard to judge from photos, how exactly a puppy really looks.
He stands very wide at the front, but this could be due to discomfort from the harness.
I would ask them for a video of the puppy moving freely without the harness.
Ideally, you should be able to view the puppy in a natural setting with Mum.
