water seeping thru front of hood


I had a head on collision few months ago and my cx-3 held up pretty well where only the front grill and front bumper had to be replaced.
When I got my car back, i noticed the gap between the grill and hood seems wider than before, and after washing my car, i've noticed that water is seeping and collecting into the
area where the hood latch is. I was wondering if this was normal since i never tested it before the accident if water was coming in.

Also, i've noticed on the inside side of the hood, the weather stripping is oddly missing on the passenger side, which i assume is normal from some pictures of other cx-3 inside hood.

Plus is there any way to check if the hood is even slightly bent, the body shop i took it to didn't do a frame test, and so far all i can go by is judging from looking at it.
