Do tent wrinkles/creases make any difference?

Hi everyone, so I recently purchased a Mars Hydro 3.3x3.3 grow tent as well as a light and fan/filter of course. One thing though, after setting up the tent I ran into an issue with realizing how bad the climate was in there because of the near direct sunlight the room receives for most of the day. Midway through installing the lights I decided to take the whole thing apart and put it into my bedroom instead. The climate is better in there, but I worry that because I essentially had to build the thing twice and take it apart in between (which, by the way, was not easy to do because of how small the room was) that I may have partially compromised the tent. Maybe not completely, I would doubt it in fact, but possibly lessened the tents condition considerably. Just visually comparing how the walls of the tent looked between the two locations it appears to be considerably more wrinkled and in overall worse condition now than it was before. Not sure from where, but I heard that creases and wrinkles in the walls or reflective lining can cause hot spots or something like that, and that it is generally less efficient at getting an even spread of light. Regardless, I’m just looking for an opinion on where I’m at right now. Attached are photos. Should I be fine and just use this tent as is, or should I shell out another $160 to the Mars Hydro gods for another tent? Thank you guys.

Tin foil doesn't look crumpled the first time you use it. Then, no matter how many times you try to flatten it, it's crumpled..

I think it's like that? Reflections will bounce surface to surface vit I doubt any damage has been done

You're going to be fine.
How much light are you putting on to those young ladies in there?
That light seems kind of close... and you should get your RH up by another 25% or so...

Thank you, there’s a ts1000 in there and I agree I noticed when I took the photo that was a bit close so I moved it up about six inches. And yeah I’m with you on the humidity I have a whole room humidifier coming in that I’m gonna stuck in my bedroom with the tent.

Thank you to everyone, I think you guys are right that I’m overthinking this. I have quite a tendency to obsess over just about everything so I appreciate you guys helping knock this worry down. I’ll move those lights away too! Thank you guys again
