I’m sitting in the lounge waiting to board this flight. Saw a dent in the attachment of tail wing to the body. Is this common?
Also I could be wrong and it is part of the design of the airplane.
Any guidance is appreciated!

Looking closely at the photo, that's an Embraer 175. I Googled other photos of the same model aircraft, and all of them have a similar flat surface. It appears to be a flat designed into the aft fuselage to accommodate trimming by moving the entire stabilizer ("tail wing") up and down at the leading edge.
