Red face gap between hood and bumper

Is there any way to close the gap between the hood and the front bumper? I mean the gaps next to the center diamond logo. Mind is almost half inch apart. Any thoughts?

I went to a high-end body shop, and they told me the gap that I have is normal. Jeff, you saw my car at the get together.
