That depends on the definition of "correct".
Scanner allows any separator (which is whitespace or comment) between #
and the following stuff. So

would also print #foo.

The various syntax diagrams you will find generously omit whitespace
handling, so it is probably left to the implementor to decide whether
whitespace is acceptable after the leading #.
I would prefer if if wasn't.
