Welcome to the forum! It sounds like you have absolutely nothing to worry about. From what you wrote, I'd say it's a normal baby tiel. It's body SHOULD be warm and puffy and the throat area ( also known as the crop ) probably still has undigested food in it. Birds of ALL ages don't swallow food right away but store some in the crop.
