So i got one. But when i close the lid it closes where the magnets are but inbetween it kind of bends a bit. Is this normal.

There's something a bit wrong there, just shut mine and checked it sits flush, no bend.....

I think the middle is supposed to have a magnet too? It seems as if there's nothing trying to connect the lid to the computer.

No there isn't supposed to be a magnet in the middle, but that bend also shouldn't be there (at least it isn't in mine).

just get a new one...i would. that's definitely not normal and you paid so much for it that it should be perfect. they should exchange that no questions asked.

I got it offline, but its stock. I exchanged, about to open the new one. Almost got the black one, but stuck with white. Lexus, what do you do with so many mb's?

As others have mentioned it should sit flush and straight across. I just closed mine and it does. Yours is not the way it should be. Get it replaced.
