I recently noticed that my puppy's rear leg is little bit pointing outwards. It's straight while walking sometimes but while standing it's outwards. Picture attached down. Is there any problem? Flooring is rough cement and sometimes tiles.

if the feet point outwards all the time he is probably cow hocked, thats what it looks like in the 2nd picture. there shouldn't be an issue unless you notice this is accompanied by limping, or bunny hopping etc. You can check with your vet and they can tell during the physical exam if your puppy is in pain etc as it might be related to the hips.
