Small indent in body above passenger side door

Im not sure if im in the right forum for posting this but after washing my 2017 EX-L Accord today i noticed a small indent in the body right above the passenger side door. The car is still very new with only 8000 miles on it. It might have been there since delivery. Not sure. Its not a place where you would normally take notice. Its strange that there is no actual mark or impact on the body itself. My question. Is this something that can be pushed out or will it have to be filled in and repainted and blended? Ive included pic of the indent
Thanks Mike

I doubt this wouldn't have been noticed before, if it was there at delivery. Have you washed the car before now? I'm just guessing here, but could this have been made by someone yanking down on the grab handle inside the car? Does the ding line up with where the handle attaches? Seems like there would be some kind of reinforcement in that area. I'm also thinking this could be made by something like a person's fist, elbow, or a piece of wood, that would not leave a mark on the paint. I'm just guessing again but I think it could be removed by paint-less dent removal. The headliner, and possibly the curtain airbag would have to be removed to try it.
Good luck

Paintless dent removal places should have no problem handling this for you.

I have a Paintless dent removal place right down the street from me. Im gonna take it there first and see what they say. Does anyone know what this specific part of the body is called. Or is it just the door frame?
Ive been watching a bunch of Youtube videos on pulling dents from every imaginable part of a car body except where my dent is. Its pretty stiff in that area. Hoping it can be done

A competent PDR place will have no problem with this; its not just about pulling.

I finally found a vid of damage in the same spot except much worse than mine. At least i know it can be done. He does it all from pulling and tapping from the outside only. This guy is a true artist! Pretty amazing results.....

After seeing this miracle worker artiste, your dent is absolutely fixable back too 99% perfect.

Seeing what he did I personally would accept his work as final.

Be sure to check back with the results !

Just make sure they don't drill from inside the door in order to push it out.

But that's common PRD procedure when they cannot access the dent via the window, etc. Drill a hole then plug it.

I have a very similar dent in the same area and Im not sure how it happened. I ended up moving my roof rack pad over the dent until I get around to getting it repaired. Definitely a head scratcher on how it came to happen
