Quick question about upper windshield seal

While admiring my new mini, I noticed that the left half of the upper seal of the windshield overlaps, and then halfway across it underlaps, and then pops out again to overlap at the far right. I don't know if it's supposed to be overlapped or underlapped, but I'd like to fix it. I looked all over the internet for a picture that would show me which is correct, but found nothing.

If anyone who has a 2012 or later coupe would take a quick look at theirs and let me know how it's supposed to be, I would really appreciate it.

Here is a picture that shows the transition from underlapped to overlapped at the far right.

The seal should stand up against the glass so the water runs off, problem is if its been fitted under for any extent of time it tends to mould itself like that and keeps popping back, if thats the case a new seal is needed and fitted properly from the start.

If youve caught it in time carefully ease it up with a blunt plastic tool and it should stay in its correct position hopefully.

Thank you so much!

I used a very thin plastic coated card, with great success, if anyone encounters the same issue and is looking for the perfect tool.
