Default Is this tail bobbing a problem?

Hey all, ever since I brought Thunder home I noticed his tail bobs when he breathes. I read that if it's a centimeter difference then it's a problem but I'm just not sure. Other than the bobbing he is eating well, drinking, playing a lot, and singing his little heart out. He's very active and there is no discharge or bubbling in his nostrils. I'm probably just paranoid but I'd really appreciate it if someone could look at this video and reassure me. It's the most pronounced it gets. Here's hoping the embed works!

Looks fine to me, but I struggled to see the video clearly and it wouldn't go larger for me.

That's fine, it's just his/her normal breathing pattern No concern there!

I agree that your little Thunder is just fine.
