The circled empty spots make the bent four shape.
Bent four is a live shape.
However, if a bent four appears in the corner, the status of the group may be different. See bent four in the corner.
When the bent four has cutting points such as that induced by the stones, it is not necessarily alive. This particular case is also known as 断头曲四 (literally, "decapitated bent four") in Chinese.
Note however, not all configurations of cutting points cause the status to be unsettled. Also, one must take note the number of liberties on the individual chains. In the situation here, Black is unconditionally alive with four points of territory.
