I've got a fairly simple shape, and when I render it in cycles I notice some odd shadows being cast across part of the faces.

Model with shadows

Here are some images of my wireframe - what could be causing the green-encircled shadows?

Front wireframe

Side wireframe

Off-rear wireframe

Do you have smooth shading active? If that's the problem, try marking some edges as sharp, use the "Auto Smooth"-option in the object data panel or split some edges.
