Has the barber just butchered my beard?

First time growing a beard - got to around 10 weeks and was starting to look a bit unkempt. As i've never cropped the neck and tidied a beard up before, thought i'd go to a professional. All good, nice fella, explained that i didnt want to lose much if at all, off the body, just neck tidy and general spruce up. He said sure, i'll do x y z and then a little for definition here, pointing to the area directly SW and SE of my mouth, i say 'what do you think?, he says it's just for definition, so i give him the green light.

This is how it looks now. Cant blame him, as ultimately i said ok, but i'm now thinking of just whipping it all off and starting again.

My q's are

a) does this look as weird / shit as i think it does.

and b) if i leave it now and let the shaved areas grow back, is that going to blend back into some form of normality, or is it's unlevellness going to look weird as it grows at different lengths? I certainly dont envisage me continually shaving this area to maintain this current shape.

As i say, first time growing a beard here, so any thoughts appreciated.

It looks a bit weird, but not bad. Can't say for sure with it being a cropped photo. It seems the industry is pushing different designs/shaping to adapt to less men shaving. You have good coverage and density, so a beard works for you. Those areas should blend in fine if you also trim the rest of it as it grows in so both sections end up the same length again.
