I recently adopted a 4 month old boar and I weighed him yesterday and he was 822g but I don’t know what the average is at his age and whether or not he’s at a healthy weight. I’ve looked online but I can only find average weights for adults.

you go by feel I think somewhere there is a guide to feel. However my 10 week old sow is 580g so that doesn't sound too bad.

822g at 4 months definitely sounds a good weight. By the time he's an adult you might have a chunky pig on your hands :))
