My kitten seems to be after food all of the time and I seem to be spending loads on kitten food.
Do kittens normally eat so much.
He is finishing a box of 12 pouches within 3 days.

IME kittens eat by the ton. Daily. But get a vet to check him out if you're worried.

do you feed him just pouches or dry food as well?
how old is it?
i would give it 2/3 pouches or 1 tin a day and keep dry cat food available along with a bowl of water for the rest of the time.
have you wormed him?

i'm with sazm - does he need worming? my two are 12 weeks old, eat two pouches each per day plus a good handful of dry food, plus half a bottle of cat milk between them (they love it!). But they do seem to eat loads, and have that leggy skinny tweenager look to them at the moment!

4 pouches = 1 tin. It seems like more because it's expensive.

Get him tins and get him some dried food.
