Just like the person says below, everyone is different. Myself I had never noticed my aperture being off center until I was hanging out with a former flute teacher and another friend playing some trios one day. The other friend is primarily a clarinet player and she was getting tips for her methods classes. When my flute teacher pointed out my lips I was a little stunned because I had never really paid attention to it. I've watched myself in the mirror a lot over the years, but for whatever reason as I paid attention to the aperture I never noticed it being off a bit. I strongly believe it's just a personal lip thing.
I don't fight it with a kid if they are able to get a good sound and control the opening.
