Left ventricular ejection fraction is 60% and right ventricular ejection fraction is 57%. are these normal for a 20 year old male?

Yes that's normal: Ejection fractions between 50 and 75% are normal. Hopefully, the physician who performed your exam or your primary doctor would be able to explain any abnormalities or concerns from your exam. But based on the numbers you quoted above, the ejection fraction is normal.
