Nikon 18-200 ED white mount dots don't line up??

Hi

I have the above lens, had for a while and it works well (as far as I'm concerned)... However, on purchasing the HB35 lens hood I've found a problem. The Aligning white dots - are in line. The dot just by the red VR is top and central = correct, but the filter end the dot is round at quarter past the hour (so to speak). I'd never notice this before, but the hood doesn't fit without vignetting. Has anyone either experienced this and fixed it? OR do you know if it's something I could fix.  I didn't buy the lens new and as I said it does work well, but this frustrates me.

HELP!!

Thanks
