Aluminum Scratch/Mark Below Brand New iMac Display?


Hello! I just received my new 2020 27" iMac customized with a 1TB SSD. When I unboxed it, I noticed below the screen bezel where the display meets the aluminum housing that there's this rough area that sticks out and is reflecting the light. It's really noticeable, but so far seems to be cosmetic as it's not affecting the display.

Could this just be due to a bad display assembly process? Is there a recommended way to lessen the look of it? Or just deal with it the way that it is? It would be a hassle for me to return it as I ordered it customized online and the Apple Stores near me have limited availability.

Any thoughts would be appreciated! Thanks!
