Window Header

Hi everyone, first post here.
I just had a dormer window installed by my builder. The windows now in and I noticed the timber lintel seems to be visible above the aluminium frame, with a strip of flashing hanging vertically down.
Is this how it is supposed to be or should there be some sort of flashing/protection covering this? I assume it’s just that the builder hasn’t had a chance to add it yet, but wanted some advice before broaching it. Thanks in advance.
