Thank you for posting your query.
First of all, I would like to reassure you that your X-rays are perfectly normal and you do not have any significant problem with your spine.
I agree there is slightly increased curvature of your spine (at thoracic level), mid back region. This is mostly related to posture.
Doing spine extension exercises, and maintaining a good posture while sitting would be helpful.
I hope it helps. Please get back if you have any more queries.
Best wishes,
