My ssd arrived and I’m ready to connect it after watching tutorials.
Only problem, the motherboard doesn’t have a screw already in it like all the videos I’ve seen. I got the Samsung 970 pro. For it to be held down it requires a small screw, but it’s not there.

1. So does anyone know what type of screw that is?

2. Can I connect my SSD for now without the screw and get to work on the software end? Or does the screw act as someone sort of safety to ground the SSD? Idk.

The above link is for Asus Motherboards. There may be specific ones for your own if different.

New motherboards usually have the screws and standoffs already installed. See the picture below. There may be a heat sink covering the M.2 slot underneath. The screws that hold the heat sink will also hold down the M.2:
