Cpu Fan Question

Just have a quick question which has been scaring me since i put my computer together.

When the fan that comes with the cpu is correctly installed, does it look like a split open grain on the bottom of a mobo?

    When properly installed, a center rod spreads the sides of the surrounding part, tightly holding the cooler.
    The key to a good mount is to be able to verify that all 4 pins are completely through and locked. You need to be able to see the back of the motherboard to check.
