Default Stand for Exam/ stand stay training

This is what I worked on along with finding heel position with Recon today.

He kind of surprised the hell out of me. I have NEVER practiced stand or stand/stay with him before... except standing for me on the grooming table, but there was no stay for that and I can't imagine he generalized that?

I did click at the wrong time on the third go as he moved his leg, which I didn't mean to do as I was trying to click before he broke the stay like I thought he was going to do and kicked myself for it already, so no need to point that out, but what I'm wondering... because I've never trained a stand/stay for exam before... is after I click and come to him on that third repitition, he bounces a little/moves his feet to get the treat out of my hand. He was doing that every time BEFORE I started filming as well... and I don't actually release him until after I reward... Do you think this will be an issue as far as keeping his feet in one spot on a real SFE, and if so, what can I do to stop him from moving... I've already clicked so I HAVE to reward, and I can't see me doing anything different between the first two/last and that third one that would effect him.

Do you think I should let him get set up straight first/give him more time? I noticed that the third one when he moved, he did so because one foot was not underneat him and was awkward. Opinions? I'm brand new at this.
