I was looking at my old motherboard and I noticed that something seemed odd with the pin connectors where the CPU goes.

It is on the left hand side in the first picture. Make sure to zoom in for both pictures. Second one has a red arrow pointing to it.

I honestly can't even tell whether it is bent or the pin higher up than the other ones. I am going with the latter as it doesn't look bent.

How do I fix this? If it is possible at all. I know if it is bent you can try straighten it. But to me it looks like it is raised up. Do I just attempt to push it down softly?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. As I am still pretty new to understanding the building and knowing the hardware side of things.
