Kind of just looks fat mine gets like that sometimes. Try not feed him for a bit and see if he gets skinnier! Should only take a few days if he's only fat.

Yah I would just give him no food and see what happens.

It could be I never thought of that. But I have little experience with that as my plecos are males

A little fat, but looks like a female so that can account for the extra chubby look - hold off regular food for a day or two to see if it goes down.
