If it’s charging then it shouldn’t be damaged.

It’s fine. It’s very difficult to damage an iPhones port on accident. Worst case is the plug gets bent. Put your mind at ease.

The cord is held in place by tiny clips. Very difficult to damage. Yanking or purposefully removing the cord from the port, shouldn't make a difference to the structural integrity of the port.

It’s working fine but the other guy wants to waste my time at apple and I will test tomorrow the charging on my MacBook
It was working fine when you posted this thread, so you clearly had some lingering concern. @Jason Honer gave you a way to alleviate it and get an expert answer.

If you think going to the Apple Store is a waste of time, then you obviously have your answer: it’s fine, just like it was before you posted.

Those ports are pretty sturdy.
