5 day old male jack Russell

I have a 5 day old Jack Russell pup who likes to nurse from his mother most of the time compared to his 2 litter mates. He is the largest of the litter mates and whimpers more than they do? Is there anything I should take notice of or

Be concerned about?

I wouldn't worry about it. Nature will take it's course and things almost always even out without human intervention. Most mothers won't let you near the pups either way. The only time to worry is if you hear really high pitched cries that sound like a seagull versus just squealing. Then you should call a vet. Good luck with the new litter!
