When you say "the flat side instead of the round part" are you talking about the sheets of metal roofing or are you talking about the screws? I'm thinking you mean that you put the screw holes into the wrong part of the metal sheets of roofing. Is that right?
(I don't know the answer either way, but maybe your response will help someone else to give you an answer.)

Dear Lincoln,
I've seen this before. You have the flat part of the metal,"drainpan", and the round part of the metal,"crown". The screw always goes into the crown. To repair this, get a small piece of the same material, cut it to fit over the hole after removing the screw. Apply a good silicone sealer all around and under the patch and screw it in all around the outside of the patch. Do this when you are sure that the silicone will have 24 hours to dry/cure and you should have no problems. Question though; Did you apply sealant at the spot where the crowns overlap? If not the whole roof will leak during a hard rain.
