    Report it as a defect.
    What likely caused it is swelling from heat by sunlight.

    Yes, that is a defective window. For some reason it is very common with half round windows like the one in the photo and also with long rectangular windows.

    When I find them I say something like this:
    "The ______ window has a swollen gasket/seal, this is an indication of a defective windows. The only cure is its replacement".
