Cart is bent. Is this normal?

Does anyone else's have this bump that is pushing the board away from the cart, and separating the shell?

Looks like something you can remove yourself. Just open up the case and cut it away.

I'll do that. I wasn't sure if it was there for a reason.

It looks like there was a bit of flash from the mold release. On my X5, there is a tiny circle in the shell in this same location indicating this is where the plastic is injected. It would be safe and recommended to open the case and cut off this bit of excess plastic with a hobby blade before attempting to use it.
