Did the breeder tell you how the kink got in there? It could also be a heredity defect.
I'd let a veterinarian look at your pup's tail. You just want to make sure that the kink doesn't cause any pain. It's always better to take a new pup into a vet for an evaluation anyway. They may find things that you haven't noticed, and it will ensure that you have a healthy pup on your hands. How old is your pup?
In some rare cases a kinked tail could be a sign of a hereditary problem with a pup. But having your veterinarian perform a in depth check up should rule anything like this out.

He said he was born like it, he said it's got better as he's got older. He's 8 weeks. He doesn't seem to be in any pain whatsoever and it doesn't bother him to touch.
I think I may take him to the vets tomorrow to double check?

That sounds like what you should do. Whenever you acquire a new pup you should always have it examined by a good veterinarian. Sometimes tails can get kinked becauase there is limited room in the dog's womb and all that crowding from other pups can cause a kinked tail too.
