Wrinkle in ceiling panel

I was looking the other day and it looks like the vinyl on the ceiling panels has shrunk, or shifted and has taken on a wrinkled appearance at a couple of the joints. If I'm not mistaken, it almost looks like a small staple hole in one of the areas. There is a piece of vinyl about an inch wide that would cover the seams in the panels. Is there a way to either remove this piece, flatten out the ceiling material, and re-attach the strip, or loosen the strip on the edge, then push the material back into place?
It is not caused by water and is mainly a cosmetic issue. My biggest concern would be ripping the material, then I'd need a 2" wide cover strip..
TIA..

I had a similar situation with the ceiling material looking wrinkled also. I just ignored it thinking that if I tried to correct it I would definitely damage it. I would occasionally notice it but accepted it. Just my opinion.

If it's minor wrinkles that are just bothering you, You may try some glue in a syringe, poke a hole in the wrinkled area, smooth it with a credit card or something firm like you were applying a decal and smooth out the wrinkles.

I thought of that, but the issue I've got is the cover strip between two panels. The vinyl seems to be shrunk back from those. I'm not sure how they are secured to the ceiling, so that I can push it back under, without making a mess on the ceiling.
