I got a high compression head and when I tighten down the bolts the head gasket folds on the sides where there are no bolts but the side with the bolts are ok why is it doing that?

Pictures would tell us a heck of a lot more than the description you just gave..Maybe someone else can, but I cannot understand the meaning of what you just said...lol.

When I tighten down the bolts the gasket bends downward causing a leak I can’t take a pic because you can’t see anything due to the bad angle

Maybe I can put gasket maker or sealant to fix it if I don’t find out why it’s doing that
