Should you have any problems

Note:

What does it mean "Should you have any problems, please contact me"?

 

Answer:
To understand this, you should know what the difference between these 3 sentences:
1) If you fail the subject, you could re-take it next semester.
(I think it's quite possible for you to fail )
2) If you should fail the subject, you could ....
(I don't expect you fail, but if you do ... )
3) Should you fail the subject, you could ...
(To me, it's very unlikely, but if you do ...)

So as you can see, the degree to which you believe whether the thing is going to happen or not affects the way you use the 3 sentences.

Now going back to our question, you can recognise that
"the speaker thinks it's very unlikely that you would encounter any problems at all"
