It'd help to post a photo of the bit.

Does the bit have any curve on the bars or rings? Usually the curve should match the same curve of the horse's tongue and/or sides of mouth depending.

I made this many years ago for someone asking a similar question, hope it helps! Basically, the bit should be sitting in the horse's mouth so that when the rings are situated the bit curves with the ends pointing away from the horse's nose. I'm bad at explaining things...

You should submit that diagram to "Equis" magazine for publication.
