Is Five Below under- or over-valued?

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Five Below's PEG ratio

Five Below's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.1543. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Five Below's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
