Next to impossible to tell. All camera lenses more or less have some degree of distortion inherently built into them. From what I can see though it does look somewhat warped. The warping mine had is barely enough to see if you stare at it. If you keep having problems with leaks its the actual valve cover for sure. Here we are a month later and mine is dry as a bone still. Definitely happy to have fixed that. i'll see if i can post a picture of mine...
