if you put a block under the edge of the hood and then use a rubber mallet on the bump you can probably flatten it out. The block (preferably wood) is used for leverage and to keep the edge of the hood stationary as you hammer at the bump. You'll probably still have a bit of a ripple but it will be less noticeable.

If you had a pic it would be a lot easier to tell you how to fix it.

Just put a towel or something soft over it so the mallet doesnt harm the paint.

leave it on, its the most stable you'll get it when its bolted down and latched.

bolted down and latched, hood closed all the way. Put a rag or two over the spot so you don't damage the paint. That's all it is. couldn't be much simpler.

If you're really that worried, take it to a shop.
