I think it's normal when first starting out, but def something to address in physio as soon as possible so you don't end up permanently walking incorrectly or even reinjuring yourself. One thing a good PT will work on is making sure your gait is correct and that you regain your range of motion in any affected joints, as much as possible.
I've never regained full ROM in my ankle, unfortunately, despite PT and daily exercises. But one of my breaks was right at the ankle joint. It's not normally noticeable when walking but inclines and stairs I'm still a bit limpy.
