There is no right or wrong when it comes to flight plates. Some are domey, some are flat and some are concave. As a disc ages with use the flight plate tends to dip, so a flat top becomes concave. The only important question is your preference. For putters more than any other disc, if it feels good in your hands then it is a good disc. If a putter feels great then it will be (unless your head/psyche gets in the way).
Personally all my putters need to be at least slightly concave. They fit better in my hand and I love them that way. But I know very fine players who like domey putters too.
The flight path of putters varies less from run to run (and colors, weights and plastic blends) than other discs. The blunter rimmed discs (putters) are more more consistent than sharper rims (drivers) across the board. So whatever slight variations in flight paths you may find in your favorite putters are easily learned and adapted to.
Never feel bad or apologize if your preferences are different than your buddies. The best answer is winning the round.
