Default splinter in seam in woofer

New to the hobby. I recently assembled a speaker kit with a Peerless woofer:

Peerless 850122 woofer: 6.5", 17cm, Polypropylene cone with Low Loss Butyl Surround.

During assembly a small wood splinter lodged in the seam where the bowl-like cup at the center of the woofer meets the cone (I assume it's the cone--the inward-slanting surface sitting in the rubber outer ring).

Very small splinter--can't get it out with a fingernail. Any reason to get it out? If so, what's the best way? I'm afraid to dig around with a needle.

Thanks for your suggestion!
