How should my cast fit?

I just got a cast on my left ankle today after having my surgical splint removed. How loose should this be? I can get all of my fingers in the top of my cast and I feel my heel moving some. I just want to make sure it's not too loose. I've never had a cast before and I don't know how the should fit.

It should be a bit loose to allow for swelling.
