un mamelon galbé
Explanation:
Eurodicautom gives this definition for nipple (for pipes)

(1)
TERM nipple

Reference Customs Tariff Notex CCD 73.20

Note {NTE} tube and pipe fittings



(1)
TERM mamelon

Reference Tarif douanier Notex CCD 73.20

Note {NTE} accessoire de tuyauterie

For contoured I would use "galbé".

To add shaped into the picture, how about\" mamelon de forme galbé.\"
But it seems redundant to me in English. I would translate it as mamelon galbé, myself.
