They look fine. You would be concerned about gouges. If you can't feel it when you run a fingernail across it, no worries. If it really bothers you, lap it. 

Hey guys I just got this used Noctua NHD-14 online and it has all this scratches and bumps on it, they look like little burn marks and one of them is a bit orange. I'm gonna put it on a 10900K (I'm not planing on doing crazy overclocks but I'll definitely overclock a bit at some point), will thermal paste fill in the gaps or will it set my house on fire when I put stress on the cpu? I'm kinda already over budget with this biuld 😕

Thanks a lot!!
