Default Axle fork screws/bolts

After reinstalling an axle I noticed the two button head bolts that hold the axle in place on the right fork side are slightly bent. Are these designed this way or should I b getting new ones that are straight Thanks in advance

It would help to tell us what model and year your bike is, as most of the bikes I know have studs on the right fork leg. However bent bolts are not good, so new ones would be a good idea!
