+1 for inspection so you get an independent opinion about standards.
Does your builder have a display home?
If they do go and take a look and take photos if they don’t have gaps that have been filled. Builders are meant to build your home to their display home standards.
I think there have been some previous posts about gaps around windows on this forum.
Also your aluminium frames look quite scratched, unless it’s the pics. They will need touching up.

We are the same with our house.
We have checked our builder's display homes and our is finished very different around the base of the windows where it meets the brick sills.
Looks like the bricky came back after finishing the walls and did the sills really quickly and poorly and possibly ran out of bricks and we can see chips, the cavity holes in the bricks and gaps where the bricks don't go under the window frame, which is causing the flap seal to waiver and not work correctly.
I'm even unsure where flashing was installed also.

The builders have said this gap is normal and that it doesn’t matter as the gap has been covered with a wooden trim. Hmmm still need them to put something between it I think.
