A320 bopping at flap full

I’ve noticed when I select flap 3 +F the aircraft bobs up and down a little

What’s you speed load and alt?

This is expected, it’s the autopilot’s way of reacting to the unexpected amounts of lift in an effort to level out and/or maintain altitude.

But it sorta pitches up and down 5 degrees

Hey! What I will recommend is firstly slowing to the right speed for the right flaps and secondly, do that as you’re descending, either through the glideslope or before intercepting the localizer.

Can you send a video

What is 3+F? Do you mean flaps full?

And it’s something that’s been eliminated on the B757. I hope when the A320 family gets another rework, the devs can eliminate this issue.
