Pergo/Laminate Flooring slightly raised at joints

Hi,
I recently installed Pergo brand laminate flooring (about a month back). I noticed today that at some joints it's raised such that if I apply pressure at the joints the, it goes down about 1/5th of an inch or so.
I wanted to know if that is normal and/or if I may have made a mistake during installation.

Thanks all!

Your subfloor was probably not perfectly flat and the floor is flexing some.

Also, what is 1/5th?

Thanks for the reply! Is that reason to worry? 1/5th of an inch or so, wanted to give an estimate of the amount of flex so when I press hard on the joints, it goes down by an amount equal to 1/5th of a inch in height.
