16-55 Lens Hood advice

Hi, well I never thought I would be in a position of having to ask this question! But at the risk of being politely informed that I am not worthy of this lens here goes (I have had Fuji lenses since 2016).

I have just bought a Fujifilm 16-55/f2.8. There is a Fuji UK cashback spree on at the moment. Got home today, tried it out (on a XT3), delighted. Well delighted until I tried to remove the lens hood.

Now removing a lens hood can hardly be described as the most taxing task, but mine refuses to come off or be removed. It clicked naturally into place when I mounted it. Can I twist if off? No, it is stuck fast! It is not cross threaded (that I can see). I don't want to exert too much pressure, but having exerted more pressure than perhaps I ought to it remains stubbornly stuck fast.

Anyone else experienced this? Any advice before I return it to the shop?

Thanks in advance.
