Ah... yep. It's probably his latch. Hopefully the links Sarah provided can give you some good ideas on fixing that. Hang in there!!

Did he lose much after birth? That's a fairly good increase for a month. He's definitely on the small side, but as long as he continues to gain, stay hydrated, and thriving I would not be too concerned about the actual weight number just yet.

I can't speak on the breast pain though as I do not know what you are experiencing or what is causing it. Some pain/discomfort is certainly normal as your body is getting used to a brand new experience... and nipple pain can continue and/or increase if he doesn't have a good latch... but I think you would actually have to speak to and see someone in person to discover exactly what may be going on.

What was his birth weight and what was his lowest weight?

'Typically' a baby will regain their birth weight by the time they are 2 weeks old... some babies gain faster than that (my third child had exceeded his birth weight by 6 days old) and some gain a bit slower. If he is still losing weight or still not gaining then that is certainly a cause for concern, but his exact weight or the fact that he is not chubby is much less concerning (and possibly cause for no concern at all).

What was his birth weight? If he has not gained weight since birth, or is losing weight, that would be an indication to supplement. I had lean babies, but they gained slowly and steadily. The numbers are what is important not the way your baby looks.

Pain in the breast? From baby latching, or do you have an infection? Some babies are chubby, some are slender. Some babies get chubby right before a growth spurt, and get lean right after. The point of feeding your baby is strictly for nutrition, not for a specific look. If your child is underweight, malnutritioned and your doctor is concerned then maybe his advice to supplement is in order. Just do what your instincts are telling you for your babies health.

He's on the small side for his age, but not all babies grow at the same rate. What does the doctor say abut his weight? You should also talk to the doctor about your plan to switch from breastfeeding to formula.

Breastfeeding is best. A decision not to breast-feed, or to introduce partial bottle-feeding, could reduce the supply of breast-milk. Once reduced, it is difficult to re-establish, so make sure that you will not want to try to go back to breastfeeding once you have switched to formula.

Nan Pro 1 is a formula intended for children up to 6 months of age. So it should be fine to use that formula as long as your baby has no allergies to the ingredients.
