I bent a USB 3.0 pin header while connecting the Power Supply. (This is my first build and it went well, except for the USB pin) I tried to straiten the pin but i just ended up smashing the USB 3.0 connector in and it just worked! The Pin is #10 or ID and is now buried under the other pins. Is this ok?

like I said any other pin and you'd be out of luck.
as long as it is not shorting 2 of the other pins its fine. you said USB is working.
mind you this is not the ideal. your attempt made the matter worse (bent pin) and as the old adage goes if it is not broken do not fix it.
