I noticed my bf's testicle to be slightly lopsided. Should he be worried?

In brief: Not unless hard lump

Some men have testicles which hang sideways, whereas most men have testicles which hand vertically.
Occasionally a man can have one of each. He may have a spermatocele cyst or a hydrocele, either of which could make one testicle appear "lopsided". He needs to have it checked out by a urologist if a hard lump is present as this could be due to tumor which would need to be removed.

In brief: Lopsided?

Normally, one testicle hangs lower than the other usually the left.
If there is some misshapenness or other lumpiness of the testicle, i would have your boyfriend see his doctor for a testicular exam.
