If you’re talking about the nip at just below Top Dead Center, that is indeed normal and very desirable. Preheat the engine to 200°F before trying to start it and that problem won’t be a problem anymore. The cylinder expands at the top with heat reducing the mechanical pinch. The longer your engine retains that pinch, the better off you are because it means the e fine is still in like-new mechanical condition.
