収まる means "to settle", "to (comfortably/neatly) fit into something", etc. 収まり is its noun form, and 収まり悪い is an i-adjective made by combining 収まり and 悪い ("bad"). Therefore 収まり悪い, literally meaning "bad-settling/fitting", describes that uneasy/uncomfortable feeling you have when something is set in a slightly wrong place or situation. The "place/situation" can be a physical container, a camera frame, a social position, or even a solution to a problem. Simply put, 収まり悪い is a way to say "kinda uneasy/uncomfortable/messy/out-of-place".
