New Alto saxophone has crooked bell

Just bought new alto horn, bell sweeps to the right ( horn strapped on ) seems to play alright. All my other altos bell aligns almost perfectly with body of horn. Is there reason for concern? Any repair guys out there? What are your thought's?  Tried to include pic but couldn't get it to message.

    You didin't mention the brand or model of your sax but some have adjustment screws for the bell. That said, a new sax should really be properly aligned from the factory.  Otherwise, you can use the simple method in the video linked below - but, like I said, a new sax should be properly aligned from the factory. Trying to repair it yourself could void your warranty. I'd contact the seller or manufacturer before making any repairs or adjustments on a new sax.
