I’ve been a few places and seen a few things but I’ve never seen a pinch cut in MDF. Am I not in the loop or was there some tension in the glue/binder that made it close right up. Is it me or is this unusual?

Check to see if your fence is square to the blade.

It’s really that not unusual to see both MDF and Particle board bow when cutting. Both products can and do have stress in the sheets. Many cabinet shop will make the first cut on a full sheets to help relive stress. For narrow strips it often necessary to double cut to get straight pieces.
