It's OK if a cam moves when the belt is removed. Just make sure the 4 cams line up with the marks when putting the new belt in place.

yeah, you're cool.. that happens most of the time. Just make sure the marks line up when you go to put the belt back you.. you will probably need help.. someone to line the cam up as you slip the belt on.. it's a PIA to do by yourself.

After you put the belt on use a wrench to turn the crank shaft and listen for pistons hitting valves. Those marks must line up perfectly. And sometimes, as the belt settles during the first few rotations, it can jump timeing. So be sure and rotate the craonk shaft by hand first before starting to much sure you don't bend your valves.
