    just wait until the top case cracks then apple will fix it for free. it should not take to long before it cracks.

    very common i had it happen twice to me i bought it in feb. my brother had his crack. a lot of people have that issue search the forums here and flicker you will find hundreds of pics of plastic macbooks all crack were the lid contacts the top case. the good news is it is a free repair w/ or w/out applecare.

    On the left of my macbook case, the top is coming apart from the case, is this what you are talking about?

    You have a 2.1GHz MacBook, that revision has a reenforced top case, but he's referring to this:

    Anyway, if it is popping up over 2-3mm, you'll be able to get a new top case.
