Looked at from above, it should be straight fore and aft; the bracket tends to bend a bit with repeated weight-bearing as you get in and out. A bit of moderately gentle yet fairly firm pressure on the arm can adjust it if needed.

Looked at from the side, it should be something on the general order of horizontal, so it's comfortable to the arm when in use. The bracket's a bit more rigid in this direction, and I've not found mine to sag at all.
