Yes at A6 clubhead either on the hands or slightly inside the hands. Obviously first and foremost is to work on your priority piece and make sure you're hitting it solid Here are a couple other things to take a look at. At A5, club shaft either points at the ball or just outside of it. At A9.5, hands exit around the mid bicep. The hands exiting low and left or the club head exiting low and left could be indications the path is too far across the ball.
I'm sharing this stuff to answer your question and maybe help other gain some knowledge of what to look for. I am NOT saying this stuff needs to be your new swing thoughts. It's like if your instructor told you to work on Key #1, you rarely actually focus on the head when trying to keep it steady.
Left pics would be a good indication path is left
