Yes, its normal. They can have both horizontal and vertical stripes. Those are stress stripes, he is not ready to breed yet. You have to condition him a bit longer till his stripes disappear.

Horizontal lines are "stress" stripes.

Vertical is submission/excited stripes.. commonly referred to as "breeding" stripes. They are used for different communications from breeding, to sickness, camo, etc.

When he has these stripes, is he flirting with the female, or does he have them all the time? Any chance you can show a picture of him with the stripes?
