Kink / Defect in PTFE-tube

I wonder if anyone else have had any defects or kinks on the inside of the long ptfe-tube for the mini-kit?

 

When i feed filament thru it there is significant resistance ( slightly less from one end then the other) at the spot where the defects are.

The filament will push thru, but only with force.

I have not contacted prusa yet (not finished with build so dont know if it will impact the functionality).

One image is with filament in tube, one without.

For those interested, so far it has not made any trouble when printing PLA atleast.
