Dispose that battery and get a new one. I would not risk it at all.

If that battery expands and contracts, and it has a damaged layer from the bend, it can vent and pop into flames.

The fumes are hazardous to your respiratory system, and no one likes an exploding phone.

How bad is the bend to the battery? Take a pic and upload it with sufficient light and focus on said component of course.

Is the battery itself warm in any area. Let it cool down for a little while and then check if this is so. If not then don't bend it exactly but well bend it a little to see if any heat occurs when yo do so.

This will tell us what we need to know.

Not warm... Are you sure?
