Front bumper cover does not line up with fender (advice needed)

I have a 2015 GC.

So I noticed today that the front bumper cover does not line up with either the right or left fender. I pushed and pressed the bumper cover to try and make it clip/line back up, and overall got it to the point where I can't see the tops of the hooks/clips that should hold the cover in line with the fender, but it's still not completely lined up.

I'm assuming someone backed into me a little while parrellel parked. It doesn't look too bad, but was interested in seeing if anyone else has come across this. I was thinking of just getting some emblem adhesive or using a head gun to see if i could glue or bend it back into place. It doesn't seem like it'd be hard to remove the cover, but i have a feeling that the clips are broken and pulling it off will only show that and not present any solutions.

Is there a downside to using an adhesive? would it cause problems in the future? Should I try a different method (heat gun? pull it off completely and re-attach and see if that works?)?

Thanks all
