Typically if a doctor wants you to increase their weight s/he would give you steps on how to do that. If they don't tell you there is a problem with the weight then there probably isn't.

I have 2 kids who are just genetically smaller. One has been at 15th percentile since before she was 1 year old. Both height and weight are lower than a "typical" child. Imagine if I made her gain weight. She would be short with all this extra weight that is not needed and makes her unhealthy.

You should not worry about increasing weight of a child at all unless the doctor says the need is there.
