Default Correct fitting of a prong

Recently I took our 8.5 month old to a reputable trainer for obedience training. She placed a prong on him to help with the leash pulling but left it loose and connected the leash to both the flat collar and the prong. I questioned it stating that I thought the prong was suppose to fit snugly and be up higher and she said this fitting is fine for now.

After I got home and thought about it more it doesn't make sense to me. The prong doesn't seem to be serving any purpose connected like that. Is it just to get him comfortable with it? I haven't been back for another session yet so I haven't had a chance to talk to her about it.

I should mention all the other exercises she gave me to do were positive reinforcement and NILIF.
