Keep or return DMP pipe

Is this normal? I just received this DMP pipe for my Puch. The plate that the muffler is bolted to seems to have been welded at angle. Therefore, the muffler/silencer does not make contact with this plate once it's bolted on. I will post a couple of pictures so you can see what I mean because my description is pretty shitty. It is mounted flush with the plate for <50% of it's circumference, and then gradually separates over the remaining portion.

I don't want to use the pipe and then have to try and return it used because it's leaking smoke or not supply enough back-pressure. What do you guys think...not a big deal, is it normal or could it be problematic.

Thank you all.
