In brief: Thin stool

Based on your question, it seems as though you're asking about stool caliber (diameter) rather than consistency (solid/liquid) when you say "thin".
Anything that narrows the diameter of the canal can narrow diameter, often hemorrhoids. If loose stools, diet and infections are common causes.
