Rokinon D980AFZ-OP Flash

While on my trip to Spain a month ago, my Rokinon D980AFZ-OP flash fell off my camera onto a concrete floor. The case split in a couple of places and I was able to snap everything back together. The flash appeared to remain functional, but when I examined my photos I noticed a pronounced shadow on the bottom of the photos.

Trying to peer through the Fresnel lens, it almost looks like there might be some internal damage from the fall, but I don’t recall what it looked like before.

I tried to photograph the area that did not look right, but I don’t recall peering this closely before, so I don’t know if what I see is normal or not.

But when I photographed a blank wall, one can see significant shadowing as shown below.

Any insight would be appreciated. I am thinking this flash may be due for a replacement.

Potential Damage?????
