Gee: From the looks of it.... Go up on the roof, install a guy cable on the left side of the mast. Pull the mast back plumb; install a few straps on the conduit, and a few masonry anchors in the meter pan; done.
Now if the guy was installed, ar a "drop support"; the situation in the photo may not have occured. The POCO here requires a guy, or an independent "drop support" for a service installation as pictured John

66: A "drop support" is an I beam, or a substantial wood beam (4x6 or larger) that the service drop from the pole is supported by. We have quite a few of these around here. Purpose is to provide adequate support for the drop, instead of the "mast" BTW, 2 1/2" is minimum pipe size for masts here also.

For Allegheny Power, 2" Pipe is allowed if the Point of attachment is between 18" and 24" from the roof. Up to 48" it must be 2-1/2" Pipe (or larger) and after 48", it must be guyed. Don't remember the maximum height for a 2-1/2" guyed mast.
OK, drop support. I've seen 'em, just didn't know what they were called...
