Default Can I fold this?

Hi! I've been wondering about this for a while... in order for me to fit the main board inside my box I'd need to fold an orange fcc-like orange ribbon... (2 times if I want the main board not to be upside-down) here is a pic:

can I fold it with no harm? or should I try to just gently bend the cable?

also, I found a bulb in my region, but it's 11.5'' ! still, it has amazing specs, do you think I could fit it in?

Definitely don't fold it with a crease. That will most likely break the wire connections. Bending it gently (ie slowly) will probably be your best bet. There is also nothing wrong with the main board being up-side-down. That's how I have mine. Whatever you choose, just be careful and go slowly with those ribbon cables. Only bend them as many times as necessary.
