My are fairly high, but it just feels right there. i have tried lowering the bar, but i have shoulder issues that made it uncomfortable. I think as long as you are squatting with good form then bar placement is more of an individual thing. The main thing is to have the bar travelling straght up and down. because I place the bar quite high it means i have a relitively upright torso, but Like i said as long as the bar is going straight up and down (and i had a video checked by BtB to make sure) then its all good.
