I did manage to close but the driver side of the hood stick up like almost an inch...why?? can you guys help me out. So stupid to ask...but I have spent more than 1 hr trying to close it properly.

do you think maybe the bolts attaching the hood loosened up somehow? try readjusting it by that, and see if that works... I know its kinda dumb, but I figure its worth a shot.

what brand hood? how long was the hood open for? did you use the last hole for the prop to hold the hood up? some hoods flex and warp when being held open for a while

Check if you left anything such screw driver, wrench, etc... in the engine compartment that will be in the way of you closing the hood. Happens to me lots of times.
