Sharkbite fitting at slight angle


I just installed a new shower valve in my master bathroom. I must have cut the pipe just a little to long because the pipe is at a very slight angle. It did click in and there are no leaks right now. I'm curious if this is okay or do I need to redo this pipe to avoid issues in the future. Like I said nothing is leaking I'm just a little paranoid. Here are some pictures.





Thanks for looking!

I would fix it, why take a chance behind a wall like that?

Ugh yeah I know. Next time I'm just going to solder in place instead of marking and soldering outside the wall.

Just move the board above the valve assembly, and it should flex back to straight.
