I am setting up a above ground pool by Bestway that is 31 x 16 feet and 52 inches deep and I am filling in now, my question is is it suppose to bow inward while it is filling and as it fills it will straighten out?? Please Help

That is common with this type of pool. Once full, the weight of the water will press out on the sides. In order for the sides to end up mostly straight, they start out bowing in - then the water pushes them straight.
