I just had a new roof put on with ridgevent in two sections.

One section of the "RidgeMaster brand" ridgevent has the ridgevent resting on top of shingles at the beginning and end of the ridgevent. This gives the ridgevent a hump look on each edge.

On one edge, I can see daylight coming in as well.

Does anyone know if this is how it is supposed to look?

Most ridge vents are covered by ridge shingles. You should not see daylight through the end as the end of the vent should be sealed, or UNDER the hip/ridge shingles at the end of the roof as shown in the link here:

See figure 20 on page 4 for ridge roofs or figure 21 on page 6 of the link for hip roofs.

Hope this helps.
