Will A ribbon cable break if bent overtime?

I recently replaced my screen and when I was reconnecting the 4 ribbon cables at the very end, they were all tangled. Plugged everything in and it seems to be working fine, but the ribbon cables were bolted down while tangled should I be concerned?

The flex cables are sensitive but some are thicker and more resistant than others. You have to avoid kinks and applying stress to those that have 90 degree bends. If you are still concerned, take a closer look under magnification. Once everything is in place, they will not be under any stress.
