On camera flash delay

I’m a total noob when it comes to using a flash. I bought  a Godox TTL flash off Amazon and as I toyed with it I found that there is a delay in flashing light. For example once it fires it won’t fire immediately for the next shot it will however fire a good 5 second after. Is it normal behavior or am I missing something? I’m using it on TTL mode btw I wonder if using it on manual makes a difference as I need it to constantly be firing when I take picture of a 10 month old. Please help
