If they're just bent (I can't tell for sure because the picture is a bit blurry) I would recommend using something like a small flathead screwdriver and gently attempting to straighten them. If you get it close enough, the cable should mate to the connector without much issue. Those look like they're just contacts and not pins so they don't need to be perfectly straight. According to what I've read those pins are for display power so they're pretty important.

You'll need to find someone to replace the connector for you. As they say plumbers can't do brain surgery, don't feel bad I'm a plumber too! ;-}

The only other option is to see if you can get a replacement logic board but that will be costly too.
