When gas/beer line is connected there is also an outside seal where the O-ring is.
You should ad some water to the keg and pressurize it to see if outside seal is ok too when the connector is on.
Use starsan or leaktest spray to check if seal is ok if it is the gas post that is bent, else just watch for water.
If post scratches connector inside it will damage connector over time, as the inside of connector makes seal with post O-ring.
