Don't trust modeller ;-)
You could try to impose ideal helix restraints on the helix and see if
that straightens it.

Subject: Helix kink
In my template protein there is a proline in a helix that causes a kink
in the helix. This proline residue does not occur in the target
protein,but modeller predicts a kink in the target protein as well.
Should I "trust" modeller that there is likely to be a kink or is there
a way of dealing with this... Thanks, Dan
