Handlebar clamps popping out

Hi,

My right side handlebar clamp looks like it's popping outwards, it's a rubber bung looking thing. This is making my bars diagonal.

Is the fix as simple as just hammering it back? I don't want to make matters worse

Thanks!

Look under the top fork clamp for a loose nut, (12 in the diagram) the risers are bolted on. Has the bike been dropped? Don't hammer anything.

Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool.

I should of said, yeah I dropped it pretty hard yesterday, that's the only real damage, but thanks I'll properly inspect it soon

The riser bolt may be bent or broken from the look of it, Good luck.
