Steering Stem?

Hoping you guys can confirm something for me, on a OEM steering stem, is it supposed to bulge and be bent towards the tank like this?
In front of my finger.

I know every other steering stem I've seen is straight as an arrow but wanted to check on the XX before buying a new one.
Thanks

Hard to see in there without taking it apart, but the service manual picture appears perfectly straight.

I do believe it is supposed to be straight, the one I replaced it with was I think. I can look tonight and let you know since my plastics are kind of off

Thanks. I think it is bent and compressed down but confirmation would be appreciated.

That is a negative sir, I know it's an ultra late response, sorry about that.
