My TJ top doesn't fit...

I recently bought my 97 TJ, I realized when I bought it that there was a gap between the top and the windows (SmityBilt 9970235). I originally thought the factory frame was bent and I could fix it but I think maybe the top is wrong. There is a channel going around which I think fits a hard door but I have soft doors. Any thoughts on this? Has anyone else had any issues like this?

If you aren't for sure, (not being rude), it should look like this:
Bestop 55012-01 - Bestop® Door Surround Kit for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec

Or this not attached:
MOPAR 55175858AI - MOPAR® Factory Passenger Side Door Surround for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ - Quadratec
MOPAR 55175859AI - MOPAR® Factory Driver Side Door Surround for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ - Quadratec

The soft top should latch into the long narrow hole on the bottom of the top part of the arm (just above the door), and the rear windows should latch into a small channel that runs down door side of the bottom part of the arm (just behind the door).
