    I would return it. That bend will never look right, even if the lights work perfect, it will always bug you

    Beamworx are the manufacturers of Odyssea lights, and the couple that I have had, have always had a very sturdy casing/housing.
    I would return that to the supplier, and ask for a replacement or refund.

    Don't even attempt to straighten as you could damage the printed circuit board and render the light useless.

    And if it is bent - then I suspect in the long term you are going to see hot spots and all sort of bad things happen to that light.

    Return to sender ... gets my vote.
