I think that's normal, to help the gear pick up the chain, you should have the same bends on all your other gears/cogs I think.

ramps and shifting pins ...

Yeah, modern chainrings (the gears near your pedals) have bulges or ramps to make shifting smoother. Some teeth are intentionally "chipped". Those are there to help the chain get up onto the chainring.
