Crooked boards

Q: While installing prefinished hardwood flooring (bellawood 3 1/4 x 3/4) we ended up with some crooked boards and seams too close together (and a subsequent ladder effect in trying to “straighten” things out). Should we try to remove and reinstall or use wood putty to fill gaps/disguise seams if possible?

This misalignment is just on one end of the room and looks like it started about 1/2 way thru the installation.

A: That is a question only you can answer. It depends how close to perfect you want the floor to be.
