Looks pretty ok but maybe just slightly underweight. Female cats are lighter than male cats.

Run your hands by the side of the rib cage and see what you feel. Is it boney? If yes, likely to be skinny and underweight. If you can hardly feel the ribs, it's likely overweight. So somewhere in between is a good guide. Also long hair cats tend to look fat because of the long fur. So do a hands run through test.

4# for a 5mo old cat is generally an acceptable weight. I agree with TabbyTom's comments.
