A little mild discomfort for the first few weeks isn't anything to be worried about, as long as it's steadily decreasing over time. Assuming you don't have other issues like excessive redness, swelling, etc. it should be fine.

Pain at 9 days
You report pain in your temple area at nine days. There should be no pain at this time so you might go back to your doctor and have it checked out.

FUE hair transplant
it is very interesting that some doctors market FUE as a non surgical, pain free procedure. FUE is surgical procedure that involves removing skin grafts using pounches. There is more of the donor area involved in harvesting and the donor area being harvested has a large nerve distribution. Any kind of invasive procedure on the skin could cause discomfort and pain. Furthermore, the doctor then needs to make incisions using needles in the recipient area to insert the grafts. This is a very involved surgical procedure and as such will take time to heal. That being said after two weeks usually most people are doe with the scabs and healed in the donor area. If you have concerns, you should see your doctor for a follow up visit.
