Was I given the correct cut of filet from the butcher?

Hi all,

Quick backstory: I was at my market and asked for a 2 pound center cut filet. This is what he came back with. (I did some trimming myself at home as there was more fat/silver skin than I expected). I asked him "Is this center cut filet…? I thought it was supposed to be rounder." And he said "Yeah this is it."

This will probably be fine for my purpose (steak sandwiches) but every image and video I've seen, center cut filet is like a tube or log. Almost perfectly cylindrical. Did I get hosed or am I just a butchery noob?
