What brand are you feeding him? I think that that might make a difference. I fed Cey Orijin Puppy formula up until about 10 months, then switched him to Canidae Pure Elements - both are very high protein.
I free-feed my Ceylon so it's not quite the same but Cey at 12 months weighs just over 10 lbs and eats somewhere between 1/3 and 3/4 cup a day (it varies). A cup a day seems like a lot for a 9-lb dog (despite what it may say on the dog food bag lol). What does your vet say? You might also try feeding the same amount but divided up into 3 or maybe even 4 servings a day and see if that might help... so that he won't be quite as hungry by the time the next meal comes...
