Sentra hood problem

So I have a 2017 Nissan Sentra SV (B17) and I think im experiencing issues with the hood release. Yes, the hood DOES open and close, but when I go to pull on the hood latch release there is little to no resistance. Also, when the hood is closed I feel like there is a slightly bigger gap than normal. Does anyone know what this could be?

Sounds like it's only being held down by the secondary (safety) latch and the main latch isn't engaging. The main latch uses a rollover cam, it may be bent or rusted and unable to roll. The latches aren't expensive if yours is broken, about $70 Nissan list or about $20 on eBay.
