Most of them are, but depending on the severity of the case, it could interfere with the relationship. Have you tried reassuring him that you find it cute and that you love him for him? He has most likely had several relationships fail because past exes weren't able to deal with what you find cute. Keep reassuring him that is NOT the case with you, that you love him for him!
If his OCD does start to significantly interfere with your relationship in the future then perhaps the two of you should talk about cognitive therapy and or medication. Again if this happens keep reassuring him you love him for him, and there is nothing horribly wrong with him, anymore than if he had an infection and went to the Dr. for some antibiotics!1
