Default spark plug wire change question

alright i've finally gotten around to changing my wires because the dealership that did it last f'd up and damaged 2 of them on installation.. anyway, i've got one more left #6 and i reach around and there is either metal or a hard plastic around the boot, can anyone tell me if that is supposed to be there, i wish i could see what i was talking about

its probably just the metal heat shield on the boot, its there to cutdown heat transfer from the manifold... dont worry about it.. you dont need them
