Beis issue

The gimel's left foot is davuk [by majority] to the right foot, which should be a problem just as yud of the alef davuk to the body of alef. The beis although hallachicly kosher [see enlarge picture] because it is perfectly square at its edges, but has almost no akev ("hanir'e l'eynayim"). There is an issue between some lomdim is this a problem that requires a shaylas tinok, since many tinokos define a beis only by its akev, and a square beis lacking an akev, they may call a caf. The mem is lacking ink. I think this is not a shinuy tzura and can be fixed [by adding ink].
