Default Little dent in deck of ls2

So I bought a forged ls2 short block a while ago. I must of hit it with the handle of my vise . It's not very deep . Should I try to fill it ? Leave it? Do you think a mls gasket will seal it properly?

take a flat file and knock down the high spots and it will be good to go.

The one wont affect anything, ck the one close to the water jacket and see where the gasket seals.
As said, knock down any high spots. I wouldn't be against a little JB Weld in the one close to the water
jacket just to fill it. I have run some with pretty nasty decks and they sealed, lol.
