Cranking really slow on cold start

as title says, car most of the times cranks slowly on cold start but the car does start...
I noticed it happens ever since I moved the battery; I disconnected it to mount it
because it was kind of loose... I made sure everything was well adjusted but
the slow cranking still happens...

Terminals/cables are nice an clean? How old is the battery? Should be stamped on the top or side.

I mean as long a your cables/terminals have a solid connection and the terminals aren't covered in oxidation or corrosion there's no need to replace those.

Could be the battery although 3 years is pretty premature for a battery...
