This is difficult to answer as i am not a vet and would hope that your vet would be giving you more advice on how to build him up. Also if the vet is concerned about his weight i would have thought that he would carry out some blood tests to see if he has any thyroid problems etc. When you vist the vet next, let him know that you are worried about the weight and ask for their professional opnion as to what to do next.
I hope all works out well as your kitten is adorable, hopefully he is just a slow developer and will catch up soon. Also, don't worry if after their injections they are a little less like themselves, sometimes some cats react a little badly after an injection but should soon bounce back, Our cat Little Mo is terrible after every injection, it always makes us feel bad but we know we are protecting her in the long run from far nastier illnesses. :)
