akev beis entering a vav
I think this situation is a shaylas tinok, because there is a strangeness in this vav, it is square and tilted a bit, and together with the akev entering a bit might be mistaken by a tinok as a hey. But if the tinok read it correctly it is kosher.
In order to correctly ask a tinok, the body of the beis left of the vav should be covered.
