    the aluminum in the top left corner of my 2012 MacBook pro is bent. it's very minor, but I was wondering if there was any service or anything I can do to fix it that is relatively cheap

    For very cheaply? (<20$) probably not. Unless you get lucky at a third party tech repair shop

    No, any action you take or have some try, will invariably make matters worse.

    The only two options you have is
    1. Live with it
    2. Replace the enclosure with a new one.

    Aluminum is a rather soft metal that doesn't like being bent. It hates being bent back even more, there's not much to be done.
