Title:

Pins on cpu holder (part U100) look bent, can this be fixed?

Text:

I bought a dead 27" Imac i5 EMC 2374 to try and fix, I may have found another problem with the computer, I need to know if the pins on the cpu cradle / holder should look like they do (image attached) or whether they are supposed to be all uniform.
 
is it possible to either replace the part (u100) or bend them carefully back into place with a needle?
 
any advice appreciated
