If it's on Idle, that is about right, it will burn on the back part of the plate towards the feeder and burn farther forward as you increase the heat output (Temp). You can increase the MIN a bit (Maybe 8 or 10) to see if that helps, but the normal setting for the LL are MIN 6 and max 40.

it will always start at the top, close to the feeder, you will just have a wider band of burning coal at a higher feed rate

here a good pic of a Hyfire at or about idle, you can see how high up the plate it's burning, that is about normal.
