I agree with nolefan and hotel4dogs on how much you're feeding. Likewise, momoffinn mentions that her dog is a grazer, which our Brody is as well. Brody is at 5 mo. and we feed him twice per day at 2 cups per feeding for a total of 4 cups per day. He gained 10 lbs from 4 mo. to 5 mo. and he is still what I feel is on the lean side. From the day we brought him home, Brody would eat a little and then come back within 15-20 minutes and finish his food.
Even our last Golden, River, weighed in at 92 lbs, but you can see from his past photo that he was still on the lean side as well. He ate 2 cups per feeding twice per day during his adult years.
I would cut back on how much you're feeding Bear to see if this helps.
