Default Slight indent on bearing edge at seam - Pearl sensitone brass

The batter side of my sensitone brass has a ~0.5 cm long (about the width o the seam itself) indent curve in the bearing edge at the seam of the shell. It doesn't appear to be from damage as it is very smooth and not scratched at all. Possibly from the factory? Since I bought it used, Pearl probably wouldn't fix a factory defect issue for me. It still tunes well and plays great but I had been just wondering if this is within manufacturing tolerances or if I might be losing the full potential of my snare.

Is it an actual depression in the edge, or does the edge simply flatten out a little for the duration of the seam? To ask another way... If you take the head off, and set the drum upside down on a flat table, and put a flashlight in the drum, can you see light where the seam is?

I'd really rather not take off the head right now as I've got it sounding pretty good haha. When I swap heads I'll check it out but I'm not quite sure what you mean by flattening out of the edge. There is a depression that can be felt if you ring your finger around the top of the bearing edge.

Don't worry about it. It sets the evil spirits free from the drum and you'll have no problems.

See this was what I was worried about. Should I call an exorcist now or should I just leave the windows open for a while? I just can't sleep with the lights flickering on and off all the time.
