My Marginated Tortoise (Glitch) is roughly 9 months old, I'm worried by his rapid growth compared to the weight many post about their tortoises on here who are a lot older!
Glitch certainly doesn't seem disactive and has a decent set up, bowel movements are fine.
Eats a 'shell' size of greens a day OK'd by the tortoise table database.
Picture of Glitch, shell growth looks normal to me with no signs of pyramiding?

he's a lovely looking tort and i wouldn't worry about his growth rate, we all grow differently and so do torts, if he's going outside in the summer, if we get one, and has natural grazing then don't give him extra on those days. Make sure he has plenty of space to move around he'll burn calories the same as us and if you think he's not getting enough or is being greedy then try splitting his food into two meals or putting it in a couple of different places and don't cut or tear it up let him do that, but you can't be going far wrong as he looks lovely.
