HP Omen 17 chassis cracked by right hinge

OMEN X7N81AV
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi!  The chassis (shell) on my Omen 17, which I bought in December of 2017, has substantially cracked at the right hinge.  When opening and closing the laptop it shifts and separates there; I can see the interior pretty clearly through the widening crack.  I have not dropped or otherwise mishandled the laptop-- something similar happened to me on a Dell 17" laptop years ago and I've been super careful with laptops ever since.   I can't afford to buy a new laptop after less than 2 years.  Will HP help fix this, please?  Thanks.

Hey! I have the same exact thing happening. Right beneath the right hinge, cracking along the chassis from its edge above the charging port all the way to the speaker perforations. Have found numerous others on the internet experiencing the same problem.
