Is my flap crooked?

Hi all

I’ve received my first Chanel mini and am in love

I’m generally tolerant of flaws on my bags but was wondering if this flap was crooked and if so whether it is acceptably so?
It’s my first purchase via mail order owing to the lockdown so I thought I would ask the experts here!

Thank you ! 7C422315-6232-43E7-B636-066123B837CE.jpeg FE618604-9319-4318-90E3-5C09AB0887DE.jpeg 7C422315-6232-43E7-B636-066123B837CE.jpeg FE618604-9319-4318-90E3-5C09AB0887DE.jpeg EBD5B7A2-B9A1-4B22-B092-DF10F9ECF417.jpeg

Thank you all!

I wasn’t sure how problematic it being slightly crooked was but I’m reassured and am glad to be keeping the bag!

Yes I think it is crooked. It’s not terrible but if it’s going to bother you, I’d exchange it
Unfortunately I see it too. At the bottom corners of the flap, the "triangle" pieces aren't the same size...the one on our right (looking at it from the photo) is smaller.

Actually, now that you’re saying it that the corner triangle pieces aren’t the same size, I also noticed that the lines of the stitches on the flap don’t line up with the rest of the bag... can’t believe that Chanel is selling pieces like that. SMH...

I can see it but have to really staring at it. It wouldn't bother me personally but if you're not happy with it you should return it. Loose stitching bothers me more and I don't see any on your bag. Good luck deciding!
