Default Head gasket issues please help

As a novice when you come across a problem you ask the pros for advice . I'm recently putting together a 347 block . Last night when I place the gasket (felpro1011 -2) on the block I notice that the oil return hole was a bit covers by the gasket . I place the gasket on the aluminum heads and they fit perfect . Is this normal on this blocks ? Thanks for the input !

Id change them now before you get everything torqued down...blown headgasket at the wrong time can throw your whole build down the drain.
