May be normal: It is normal in thin individuals to see / feel your pulse in the upper abdomen.In that case there are no symptoms . It would also be normal to have a bounding pulse with exercise / fever/ anxiety etc. If you have additinal symptoms chest pain ,shortness of breath, dizziness then further evalaution may be necessary
