My snakes mouth after feeding

It hasbeen about three weeks since I've had my snake so this would be the third time I have fed him a pinkie.

After he ate it for a few minutes he kept opening an closing his mouth.

but a few times it was rediculous! hi mouth was so wide open my jaw dropped almost as much.

Is that normal... I'm sure it is but... why does he do that?

He's probably realigning his jaw.

Are you only feeding him a pinkie a week? For a young snake is fairly standard to feed a pinkie every 4-5 days.
