Replacement battery connector is too long?

Hello. The connector on the replacement battery I have seems to be too long. The plastic part connecting the connector to the battery feels stiff, so I don't feel comfortable bending it. I attached pictures to show what it looks like. It is a few millimeters too long. Any suggestions? Thank you.

It is an iPhone 4. What other picture(s) do you need to see? (added one more photo that went missing to original post) One photo is showing the battery flush to the right side, but the connector on the battery is still too far to the left of the connector on the body and there's no way to snap the connector on that way.

we cant really see the connector on the battery it may be the connector is not put on straight and you might need a new battery

The connector is beneath that metal part. I've uploaded a new photo and circled where the connector is. The connector is *not* attached to the phone yet because it's not going to fit unless I bend the black plastic part between the metal connector and battery itself. Does that make sense?

Solution is to bend the connector in the U-shape like in this photo: https://d3nevzfk7ii3be.cloudfront.net/ig...

So yes, the connector is meant to be moldable like that in order to fit. I bent the connector a little bit, and then attached it to the connector on the body, then put the battery in and fully bend the black connector to fit in.
