In the framework of the study of K-theoretical Coulomb branches, Finkelberg-Tsymbaliuk introduced remarkable new algebras, the shifted quantum affine algebras an their truncations, in the spirit of the shifted Yangians of Brundan-Kleshev, Braverman-Finkelberg Nakajima, Kamnitzer-Webster-Weekes-Yacobi... We discuss the following points in representation theory of (truncated) shifted quantum affine algebras that we relate to representations of Borel quantum affine algebras by induction and restriction functors. We establish that the Grothendieck ring of the category of finite-dimensional representations has a natural cluster algebra structure. We propose a conjectural parametrization of simple modules of a non simply-laced truncation in terms of the Langlands dual quantum affine Lie algebra. We have several evidences, including a general result for simple finite-dimensional representations proved by using the Baxter polynomiality of quantum integrable models.
