Gap between spicket and surround


I'm redoing my bathroom and installed the new tub and two of the walls of my surround, but when I tried to put on the third wall (the one with the plumbing behind it) I noticed that the hole I cut in the surround for the spicket was cut at a point where the surround curves (I don't know if you can tell from the picture). So, when I tried to put the spout on it, there's a big gap at the top (see picture). The copper piping comes out too far, so I removed it and have to shorten it, but that wont fix the problem. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

There's no "fixing" that one time for a new panel and moving that valve up so it ends up where it's flat.

We all know hindsight is 20/20.... and the only alternative I know of is to cut the spout at an angle to match the bevel. Hopefully the spout is a slip on type- not threaded
