Tight fit after iPhone 5 battery replacement?

I successfully replaced my iPhone 5 battery with the iFixit replacement battery. Only slight issue is that the display screen is slightly raised on middle of phone on left side (volume control side).

I have tried pushing it together fairly hard, but still slightly raised (<1mm) more than normal.

Do you think i interest something wrong or bent the case?

Not a big deal, but wondering if this is common.

Everything else works well.

As I remember, you have to make sure the top of the screen in properly located in the from before angling it down. Make sure the tabs on the side of the screen haven't got bent and are locating in the frame as they should.
