Charge port lid misaligned

My model 3 is about 1 month old now. I noticed recently that the charge port lid is misaligned and appears to be touching (or almost touching) the body on the top side when closed. I'm debating if I should bring it up to the service center when I go to fix the other issues I already have scheduled with them. It is fairly minor though compared to what else is wrong with the car. Is this somewhat common or does anyone else have similar issues?

There is a video of a guy accepting delivery and it has the lid sticking over a quarter inch out past the tail light and the SC says "its normal, look at this car." And the next car shows it misaligned forward on the car and in closer to vehicle.

I think the SC's just want to see if you will put up a big enough stink before doing anything.... which sucks if your delivery center is 4 hours away and you decline accepting it just to have to go back
