Putting middle name in last name column Qatar Airways

Hi everyone,
I booked a ticket for my father last month. On his passport his name is Hadi (first name) Januar (middle name) Pangestu (last name).
When i booked the ticket via budgetair, i made a mistake by putting Hadi as first name, and Januar Pangestu as last name.
To make things worse, on the itinerary the name came out as Hadi (first name) and Januarpangestu (without space, as last name)

​​​Is this a problem? Im starting to worry because on Qatar airways website it was clearly stated that name correction is not possible after booking is finished. I really dont want to end up having to buy a new ticket for 700.

Insights are highly appreciated

No need to do anything - this happens every day and airlines are used to deal with this. The only problem I expect would be for the check-in agent to locate the reservation as the middle name has been added to the last name (normally the reservation is found based on the spelling of the last name) but surely the reservation will be found as soon at the agent realises that he/she has to use the middle name rather than the last name to look up the reservation.

Next time leave out the middle name - not required in the ticket.
