No, That isnt normal, Where did you get your controller? Is it a real sony one or made by another company?

A few people have mentioned this. I think there was a bad batch because mine, and a lot of other people's are fine.

I haven't bought one yet.I've watched on youtube about this problem because I plan on buying a PS4 this week, and was concerned about rubber peeling on the analog stick.

My controller isn't showing any signs of wear like you've mentioned (I got it on release day) yet I know a couple of people who have said theirs is looking pretty bad. One of them told me about the rubber peeling off the left thumbstick and the R1 button constantly sticking.

Yes, this is a problem, it happened to mine. I just put some covers over them.
