If there is any problem, there is no wrong in reciting the Quran while leaning against headboard:

وقال الحافظ ابن کثیر: اي لایکلف أحدا فوق طاقتہ و ھذا من لطفہ تعالی بخلقہ و رأفتہ بھم وإحسانہ إلیھم (تفسیر ابن کثیر 1:457)

But, if one does it without any problem and excuse, then it is against the etiquettes and curtsey:

ولا تقعدوا علی مکان أرفع مما علیہ القرآن (حیوۃ المسلمین 54)

Allah knows Best!
