Reservation has First and Middle Name together

Had trouble with THY website buying a cheapo ticket today. Had to use about 4 different cards and wouldn't take any of them. When I finally did make the reservation, I saw that even though I put my first and middle name separate on my reservation(I thought), the ticket has my first and middle name as one name. Can this be fixed if I call the 1-800 number?

What do I do?

This is standard on TK tickets. No need to worry at all.

I put my name in all caps. So if my first name is Tardis & middle name is Lass
and it appears on ticket as Tardislass, there won't be a problem at Turkish passport control?

there is no connection between passport control and plane ticket

+1. My TK ticket seems to have the same, i.e. one long string dispalying first and middle name without any space.

Yes. And to add to the fact: Names can't be modified in any way after the purchase in my experience.

Just to confirm that if my father's first name on the passport is "John Doe", no hyphen or underlined, the ticket will be entered as "Johndoe".

My tickets for Cameron A Lastname regularly show Camerona on my boarding pass, on multiple airlines. When I get called to the gate they often just pronounce it as if it were my name. Annoying, but harmless (so far).

in the past i remember that while booking a flight i couldn't write my middle name separate from the first name as the system was not accepting spaces...the result was also that it was impossible to do the check-in online on the mobile app by inserting my M&S number as in the registration of my account the 2 names are clearly separate.

now it seems no problem and i write in the reservation the names separated with a space. i noticed anyway that on the docs generate automatically from the system, such a BP, the two names are joint together. at least now i can insert my M&S number during online check in
