Looks like very poor design. Head should place that gap where the strings will hold it down. Babolat grommets have the same issue sometimes.
If it really bothers you, it looks like it wouldn't hurt to cut it off. From what I can see in the picture it falls between mains. There is only one way to string mains so the string won't ever bridge that gap. Although cutting off that piece could be aesthetically unpleasant and also create a sharp end.
