Fixing my bumper

I dont know how this happened but I parked my baby in the driveway earlier. When I stepped out and turned back to hit the lock button on the remote I noticed my bumper was sticking out a little bit on the right side just above the wheel. Its night time so I cant get a pic up for you guys right now, but its popped out about an inch from the fender on the corner. How this happened, I couldnt tell you, but I dont see any physical damage at this time else where on the car so I dont know if anyone hit my car or anything in a parking lot, I doubt that. Anyways, could this be popped back in?

I'll get pics tomorrow.

Without pictures its a little hard to figure out but there are a few fasteners in the fenderwell you may want to check - if these "popped" off I could see where it would be sticking out.

I took care of it. I removed one of the fasteners out of the well to take off the slack. I popped the black plastic inside the fender well back underneath the edge of the bumper and it automatically went flush again. In other words its no longer sticking out. How this happened, I'm not sure, I'm going to assume it was from probably either backing out or pulling into the driveway. Important part is its fixed and theres no damage. Thanks!
