Correct Orientation of exhaust manifold gaskets

Motor is a 110.

Geting ready to pull a manifold, and the gaskets I received appear to be stainless steel. When laid on the flatter side and then viewd from the side, there is a ridge in the middle throughout the full circumfrance of the gasket.

Which direction do I orient the ridge? To the manifild, or to the head? Or is it a mute point and the orientation only works one way and will be obvious when I've pulled the manifold?
