I don't have the lens (yet..) but as mentionned by others most lens hoods in the XF lens line are rather shoddy and can struggle to be fitted or stored. I found a way that has cured that very simply

Just poor 2 droplets of WD40 liquid on a paper hankerchief then carefully clean the lens bayonet and the hood bayonet make sure not to leave some liquid on gear

This makes the hood bayonet working smoothly

OTOH it has to be repeated at different period of time, when needed.

The WD40 is not agressive for plastic
