That slight gap is against the plastic dash part - no sealing will happen there, I would think you are OK. The sealing happens when the door comes in contact with the seal and the metal behind the seal, not the plastic dash.

This is on the B-pillar of the car near the bottom. It isn't the main point of seal, no, but if it were raining and the door were open, there is a higher chance of water easily making it between the trim pieces and gasket and end up in wiring/frame area.

Did you try prying it away gently and letting fall back into place?

I have tried prying it away/letting it gall back into place. It actually started when I notocen some of the gasket was tucked under the plastic and most was on top of the plastic.
