No newline after ASCII response with checksum

I mostly am posting to see if this is expected behavior or not, but I’m using the ASCII protocol with the ODrive Pro. I’ve implemented the checksum in requests and receive a response with a valid checksum, but there’s no newline at the end of the response so no good way to check when the message is done being received (because there can be 1,2, or 3 characters of checksum depending). Is this expected behavior? What is the best way to handle this? Thanks!
