Unusual folds on my reissue 225?

I'm so excited to have a black 225 with GHW and haven't yet used it. It arrived in the original folded/collapsed state and when I try to open it, the sides close to the base are very rigid and stiffly folded. I also have a 226 which is stored folded but changes smoothly into the wide based position. Is this normal or is there something wrong with this bag? I included multiple views of both sides. Thanks for any input!

Not where I'd like to be

There was just a post about this same problem on their 227 reissue. https://forum.purseblog.com/threads...ttom-of-new-reissue-227.957623/#post-30923887

Hi, yes it's normal because it's folded. yes you can probably find one that looks a little less "smushed". Up to you.
