Will the suggested bid for the ad change after the ad is created?

Yes. By creating the ad, the ad system will make a comprehensive judgment based on the historical data of the account and the ad settings, and give preliminary suggestions. After accumulating a certain amount of delivery data, the system will combine the current delivery data of the ad to suggest a new optimal bid. You can check the new suggested bid on the ad group edit page.

After adopting the system bid for the first time, will the bid automatically change as the suggested bid re-calculates?

No, bid changes will only take effect once, and your bid won't be changed in the future.
