What is currently supporting the brick?
Is it really just hanging out in space like that?
There has to be something supporting it. An angle or something. It can't be literally hanging in space.
I see it, but something has to be holding it up that isn't seen. Something has to hold it up. It can't defy gravity.
If at all, it wouldn't hold for long.
That's a very bad detail.
temporarily supporting the brick and then removing the support. that's really not good. I would dig down someplace and look closer at that gap.
Builder error for sure if it has no vertical support.
Definitely do that! Good luck with that!
