Does a bifold folding closet door really need a cosmetic trim at the top ?

I had to remove the previous trim in order to install the bifold folding closet door but would like to know if it necessary to put back the trim as the door seems to look fine without it. We rent here but the landlord does not mind if the trim is not replaced.

Not sure what the trim looked like to begin with. Are those nails to keep birds from nesting up there? If you don't mind seeing the rail, it is fine, as long as the landlord puts it in writing.

I've painted a lot of houses where the bifolds don't have trim. IMO it looks better with trim. As long as it looks ok with the rest of the room and the landlord doesn't mind it's ok to leave it off. Does it look ok at the bottom where the baseboard stops short?

I don't see any wood trim, maybe the angle of the pic is confusing us ??

Trim

The trim in question appears to be the top facing. What we are looking at is the outside edge. (I think, maybe?)
