Exclamation Is the white hole on the outside AC unit serious?

Hi,

I recently discovered that there is a white hole on the exterior AC unit. Is it series? If so, is it repairable or should I replace it with a new unit?

Here are some pictures of the mentioned white hole?

Thanks for the help,

It looks like the fins are just dented. It's not serious, unless it is leaking. Is the unit cooling?

Yes, it is cooling, and I don't think it is leaking.

Will there be any problems later on, like the hole will enlarge or change size/depth due to outside weather?

Thanks,
Robby

The fins are just bent, there's no hole per say. You can pick up a fin straightening tool at your local big box store and straighten them out in less then a minute.
