Hi,

I would leave it like it is!
The smaller trunk-like branch is an optical correction to the straight line from the top and makes the whole thing look more natural...
I`d try to build up more fine branches in the top and gain more power there....

...that gives you the chance of a new sight in one year:

1. in one year its possible, that one of the lowest branches gets more character to be the fisrt branch, or...

2. you have a more matured looking tree when you remove the lowest two branches one has to go anyway because it`s inside of the curve

So, my technique would be: let it grow free for one year exept of the smaller top-branch and the one in the curve ( prune it a littlebit once in summer). Next winter you have much more branches to work with and an easier decision what to cut off...

best regards!
