Personally, I'd leave it, it doesn't really look like there is a lot there. If it is real thick in spots, you might trim a little in those spots. The shortribs are a low and slow, longer kinda cook in my mind, I like to let the fat render, they come out delicious.
Those are some fine looking short ribs by the way, looking forward to the finished pics
cheerin' ya on!
