That doesn’t look right

I'll second what both of the drivers above me said. Make sure it's right before you try to move the trailer.haycarter Thanks this.
No it's just the way the trailer is, they were debating whether or not to put it out of service but I don't want to sit around waiting for another trailer and I knew it was safe to drive but it never feels right.
Also it's hard to see the picture but it's actually gripping around an indentation
Looks like it’s one hard bump from ejecting from the jaw.
Your King Pin is sitting on top of the Jaws, & is an Accident waiting to happen...
Should look a bit like this..
And Not what you have..
I reiterate My Earlier Statement.. Unhook & try again..!!
That's literally how may it looks, my pictures at a bit of an angle so you can't see the smount below the Jaws

Fifth wheel is supposed to lock around the shank.
It could come unhooked, or break if pulling heavy very far.
