What is an expansion gap?

This is a gap that runs around the perimeter of the flooring. It allows the expansion and contraction of the floor.

It is common for small gaps to appear between boards?

Yes, this is due to seasonal changes and humidity levels of the area surrounding the timber. All timber breaths and never stops moving in it environment. Different timbers move differently so gaps may appear bigger in some timber and not so much in other timbers.
