Collapsed top radiator hose when cold?

I just noticed today that my '95 E300D top radiator hose collapses, presumably due to the cooling system pulling a vacuum from less coolant volume, when the car is cold.

The car runs fine otherwise, and I have no cooling system problems that I'm aware of.

Should I be concerned?

You need a new radiator cap, it's not relieving vac, and may not be holding pressure.
