The ports on the inside of the case look different. Is this normal?

Absolutely! Holding the front case assembly with the front away from you, you will see that the two ports look different.

The one on the left is for the iPhone's speaker and the one on the right is for the iPhone's microphone. As the speaker and microphone serve two different functions, the construction is different.

Also, the speaker port has a mesh that may or may not have a slight indentation in it. This is completely normal and simply a result of the manufacturing process.
