Brief Answer:
Pulse from aorta.

Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Thank you for the query.

If you are thin person, such pulse comes from your aortic artery. This is very normal for thin persons and there is nothing wrong in that. Sometimes pulsating tumor can be a symptom of aortic aneurysm, however it is hardly possible at your age.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.
