Bent / broken socket pins

hello guys, get the feat of breaking some pins on the socket of my motherboard ASUS Prime B450M Gaming / Br and now only the two memory slots that are close to the processor, the other two that are close to the 24-pin cable are not working give video when I put the RAM there. My computer is working normally with the memory in the first slot, I would like to know if there is a problem if I continue using the motherboard with these broken pins or can it cause a problem?

here's an image of the pins that are missing from the motherboard >>>
