    Possible bad mini split lineset bend

    My contractor friend is installing my mini split for me. Where the 1/2" line comes out the wall, this is what the bend looks like. He is doing the job at the friend price, so I do not want to complain if it will not cause an issue. Will this be okay?

    Thanks!

    Not a great bend but it'll likely be fine

    Do you think it may be worthwhile to try to round it out using a crescent wrench?

    I have a few that are almost kinked completely and they run and cool as expected of the residents.

    I wouldn't mess with it. If you ask him to change it then he will either A) Cut it out and use his torch​ to replace which you don't want or B) throw away $300+ to run a new line set and be upset when doing it which could cause the same thing just in a different area.
