those are the standoffs for the screw to mount into. there are 4 different length SSDs that fit into the M.2 slots. each slot corresponds to a different length/type.
the screws that mount in there should be standard philips screws. I cannot see a screw in any of the pictures leading me to think the standoff is empty.



the last two numbers of the screw label on your board indicates the length of the card, 42mm, 60mm, 80mm, etc.

the reviews here show what it looks like with no standoff. wrong, and with a standoff.
some board come with an M.2 heatsink and have a standfoff pre-installed. your board needs a standoff to fully secure the drive.

Standoff - seat the drive - secure with screw
Thanks for this, i managed to find a stand off and m.2 screw that came with motherboard i just installed it now thanks for your help
