Will this be a problem?

I'm at the retopo stage of this charachter and i would like to know if this point where it meets 6 edges will cause me a problem in the animation stage.

It shouldn't matter if it's going to be covered by clothes, but if not, it's definitely worth fixing.

It is a common area and common problem on many parts of a human character.

Here is one of the solutions I often use.

The White lines are the new edge flow. (at center of chest)

The Blue highlight is the 5 point connection. Unless you want to wrap two new edge loops around the whole mesh this is necessary.

And optional is an additional edge loop (yellow highlight) in case you want to maintain a clean circular shape. I usually try and place the 5 pointers away from a edge loop that is to define a shape.
