Stock hood gap alignment or adjustment?

The front edge of the hood seems to have a tighter fit and less vertical gap on one end than the other.

The side edges look aligned and the hood is even front to back, it's just like the right portion of the hood's leading edge isn't as low down as the left portion.

See how there's increasingly more black gap showing along the leading edge of the hood going from left to right?

Is there any way to adjust this or any idea what would alleviate this?

It bugs me because it shows up so clearly on the white car. I can't take head-on shots of it without noticing it. :(

Judging by a pic of my engine bay(at work so I can't actually look at the car) there are two rubber stops on either side for the hood. The one on the drivers side is by the hood prop and headlight. You should be able to adjust the height of those by turning them.

Thats what I did for the X and one of my previous cars as well.
