Will the tension mounted x-pole work for my ceiling? Concerned about safety

I attached a photo, and as you can see my ceiling paneling isn’t completely flat. It has ridges that go in and out. I used a stud finder and I do have studs behind the flat paneling of my ceiling. I wanted to purchase an x-pert to place under a stud under the flat portion. Will this be okay or will it be a safety hazard due to the texture? I can’t drill into the beam as I’m renting. I already emailed x-pole but didn’t receive a response. Thanks so much!

I used to have mine up on a popcorn ceiling and it was fine, the top has a bit of a grippy edge. Do you know how thick the paneling is? I might be more concerned about cracking the paneling. How thick is the visible beam? It looks wide enough that you could just use that and it would be stable

This is exactly the site I needed to get use of the static pole I received last month! Veena, you have laid everything out so well. This is great for me since the closest pole studio to me is an hour away.
