There are different schools of thought regarding how pocket squares should be displayed, and I go back and forth between them.  The main thing is that, with the exception of the straight-across “TV fold,” it shouldn’t look too neat or perfect.  Whether you use a puff or have the points sticking up, it should look like you just stuffed it in there and forgot about it.
