Kitten needs some practice on allogrooming (video)

This cat is messing around when grooming his sibling (allogrooming). I say messsing around but it almost looks like he needs some practice. He has clamped his brother's head to the floor with both his forelegs and he's taking little pecking-like licks of his brother's face. Not good enough mate. Perhaps he is distracted by the camera and the person holding the camera. 

Is allogrooming instinctive and does this guy genuinely need practice? Yes and no respectively. I think he's just messing around. It is a mixture of allogrooming and play.
