In brief: Thin?

In a thin person with a relaxed abdominal wall, a normal aorta pulse can be felt.
Discuss it with your doctor who might answer the question by physical exam, but may recommend an ultrasound if there's a question.

In brief: AAA must be rule out

If you have an abdominal pulsation then the most important thing to rule out is a aaa, an abdominal aortic aneurysm.
AAA can burst without warning. Please get evaluated by your doctor.
