Causes for Plastron to be Soft?

We have a little Red-Footed Tortoise, who is pushing 8 month old, the last time I checked him over his plastron seemed soft, it wasn't hard like our other one. Is it a young tortoise thing? He gets a wide variety of food, with calcium, we put a UV light on him to see if that would help.

It just doesn't seem normal to me, but then again I havn't worked with too many baby redfoots, just the two we own now. I don't remember our suclata having a soft plastron...

Any advice or suggestions would be great...thanks
