Pinched Mantle?

Just picked up this guy today and was wondering if this looked ok. Towards the bottom left the mantle looks pinched a bit and it hasnít opened in my tank fully. The last pic was in the store. The part Iím concerned with is the right side on that pic.

I wouldn't worry about it right now. if you just got him, he has to get used to your tank first. I got my maxima a few months ago and after getting him in my tank, he started gaping really big. the next day he was fine.
so give him a few days before you start to worry.
he looks good too!

he is not fully extended but not c/w PMD. Keep a constant condition for him and hope that he will improve.
