The plastic strip between the top and bottom of the screen

Customer Question

The plastic strip between the top and bottom of the screen is beginning to come out, about 6" has loosened. Doesn't seem to affect performance but it doesn't look very good and this laptop is just over a year old. Can you help?
JA: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your laptop, and what operating system are you running?
Customer: Windows 10, Satellite L50-C
JA: Have you installed any updates recently? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: no, nothing new installed. Performance of laptop is ok, it is just the appearance and worry that the loss of this stripping might cause problems in the future
JA: Anything else you want the computer expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: no, that is my problem

I am attaching a picture of the blue strip that is coming out of my laptop. It is hard to see, but I put a piece of paper between the strip and the edge of the computer screen to hopefully make it clearer. Unfortunately I cannot send the .jpg picture.
