On the TeX SE, the number of stars a question has received seems to overlap the star.

It isn't really an issue with single-digit numbers, which seem to fit neatly into the crevasse between the two bottom points.

2 stars

The overlap itself isn't really screaming for attention; the conspicuous part is more the lack of space in comparison to the nearby upvote/downvote buttons and the question stars of the other SEs. My main concern is that this sense of "crushed" interface elements makes the site look a little less polished than it could.
