This is not something a tech can easily correct.

That short length of twisted wood is too short to correct with heat and/or steam.

Any attempt to fix it would probably damage the finish, so a partial refinish would be needed ($$).

If there's no twist in the portion of the neck between the nut and the heel, I wouldn't worry about it. It has no effect on the guitar at all.

If it is a really weird twist, it may be a warranty issue and Fender may offer to replace the neck.

Can you take some detailed photos that show the twisted portion of the headstock?

as in this twisted neck on a Gibson LS-6

It is possible.

Post the pics to a free pic sharing site like Photobucket, and then post the link here.
