question about shoulder fit

Hello, I'm new to the forums and I have a quick question about shoulder fits. I recently bought a blazer which I think have shoulder pads, but I'm not sure whether it's the right fit for me. When I lift my arms, it looks like the shoulder pads jut out. Is this a sign that the shoulders are too big for me? The chest size is the right fit, and there's approximately 2cm of room. My second question is, where should the shoulders sit when you wear these kinds of blazers/suits? Should the pads meet the end of your elbow, or should they extend out just past the shoulders? I find that a lot of models on sites wear suits that make the latter case seem proper, but that seems to conflict with the idea of a fitted suit. If possible, may I also see pictures of what's correct and incorrect? Thanks for the help!
