I haven't taken my phone apart so I can't tell you what my 5c looks like, but why not take it to apple if the camera is not functioning?

Hi OP, based on your photo, there are 4 exposed pads that I can see (shiny solder dots that are contacts for a surface mount component, such as an IC or other part). At first, I thought it could be for two micro capacitors, but upon closer inspection of a bare board, it appears that there is one less IC on your board. I do not know the function or part number for this IC, unfortunately.

I would reassemble your device, and as everyone suggests, make a visit to the Apple a Store. It would be wise not to mention the disassembly offhand. Sent from my iPad.
