It's a knit-line in the plastic injection molded part. It's normal.

Re: GoPro Hero 7 is this normal??

going by the edge i'd say its a moulding mark. Mines on charge or would check

I think it's normal, I have a fine line also. But it's curious why many people aren't wondering about this missalignemt as I virtually seen all of the unboxing units on youtube has it. Even yours seems to have it. What is curious is that it doesn't offset in the opposite direction so I guess it's normal.

Hi @andreis40011,

 

Looks like it's normal. 

As long as it doesn't affect the entire performance or usability/functions that should be good.
