That is normal for a large gigas. They tend to store extra weight in their neck like that rather than the way other species carry most extra weight in the body and tail.

I'm going to move this to the General Discussion Forum just because it fits a little better over there.

Yup, it is normal. Mine isn't even one year yet and is already developing them. :]
