Bumper problems

i'm walking around to the front of my car and i notice my bumper looks funny. the top part of the bumper, right below the dip for the scoop, comes in a little further on the right side. i'm assuming someone hit me while i was away from the car. its nothing major, just a real eye sore. any ideas on how to fix it??

I assuming that the bumper is pushed back to far at the top, if thats the case then take off the under Hood plastic and under there are the four top mounting bolts for the bumper loosen the two middle ones and pull it back out then retighten them.
