Nail popping shingle

Just had new roof put on yesterday. Today, noticed the end shingle on the small roof above my front door has a nail popping out already and the shingle is lifting. Is this rare? Do I need to be concerned about the rest of the roof?

Nail popping shingle

The nail is too close to the edge and didn't connect with any wood. It went through shinles and flashing.
A new deeper cap shingle should be put on so the nail hits sheathing.
Is this indicative of the work on the rest of the roof. I would hope not, but I can't tell from one picture. It could simply be the poor judgement of one guy at the end of a long day.
