It's actually just the angle of the picture. It's sitting upright on it's own.
However, you're right it is a little unsteady and can be easily knocked over if there was a sudden violent shake. My cylinder is very slender as you can see, and the top with the attached regulator makes it top heavy and slightly unbalanced. Other 2.5 # cylinders are thicker in diameter and will probably be more stable than mine which is about 3-4 inches in diameter.
I guess I should invest in some velcro straps to tie it down, or place it on the ground for safety purposes. But for the most part, it's steady, and for me it hasn't knocked over once.
