And if anyone thinks they are good at growth estimates let me know what you think ! I'm thinking he will be about 15-18 pounds ?

I don't know that you can estimate too easily, as it depends on whether they throw to the domestic or serval side in terms of growth. A domestic cat grows most of their size early so in that case your cat might slow from now on...but if they inherit more of the serval growth genes he will keep growing steadily for some time now.

Mostly I am happy if they exceed one pound per month of life for the first eight months...then it can just depend on them individually. He looks pretty sturdily built so I think 15lbs is not unreasonable...
