I noticed that TubeBuddy allows me to choose a thumbnail for a short I recently uploaded. However, the thumbnail (I chose a spot in the video) looks “stretched out” on my end. I’m wondering if this will affect views? The short posts tomorrow, so I’ll be able to see it “live” then, but I wanted to ask in advance in case there’s anything I can change on my end before it goes live.

Most of the time, YouTube selects the thumbnail for the shorts on its own. However, if the thumbnail that you chose looks stretched out, it shouldn't really affect the views as people won't see your thumbnail in the shorts shelf. The thumbnail is only visible if people are searching your videos or if they encounter it on their home feeds; otherwise, for shorts, you should be good. The short's performance solely depends on how intriguing your video is and how well people react or respond, so you can rest assured that it won't affect your views just because you chose a stretched or bit-off thumbnail.
