EK Supremecy Evo Poor Contact With CPU?

The contact doesn't seem right to me. No paste on the right side. The CPU I'm mounting it on is the 9900K.

Should I attempt to lap the surface? (Never lapped before).

The mounting pins also look like they are pointing off in different directions, unless it is trick of the eye?

Surface of the CPU block has lots of light swirl marks under a strong light.

See images, thank you.
