Hello and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to get you the answer you need to your question.
It will be worth a try, before considering replacing your cylinder head. Just make sure you clean both mating surfaces really well, and use a sealant that is oil resistance. Put your other three bolts in and get them snug, then use a clamp of some sort to snug the faulty corner, until your sealant dries.
I would allow the sealant to dry for a minimum of 24 hours.
