Quick help needed! Does this look right?

Should the gaps between the plywood subfloor be this wide? They are not all this wide, these are the only two places. It's about 1/4" in the first photo and almost 1/2" near the top of the second photo. This is the second layer of plywood, by the way. The first (original) layer is only 1/2" so he is adding another 1/4" before putting down 3/4" pre-finished hardwood floors.

Thank you SO much!

There's no problem leaving a small gap between sheets of plywood. I've seen 3/4" solid wood laid directly over joists 16" on center and we've often laid over 2x4s laid 12" on center.
Leaving a small gap between sheets could reduce the possibility of squeaking.
I wouldn't worry about it.
