I think that at this stage of its career as a bonsai, it needs a somewhat larger pot.

I'd also cut off that curlicue at the top, leaving maybe an inch of stub. Let it grow more slowly. Otherwise, with a privet it will stay skinny forever. Ditto to a lesser extent with the branches.

Very nice trunk. Be careful of the chop site. Privet wood rots easily and quickly. Use a wood hardener to slow it down.
