Double Glazing not closing correctly

One of the double glazing windows (the left one) in my bedroom isn't closing correctly. When closed there is a gap at the top left corner of the window large enough that the rubber seals don't seal and a draught is blowing. Is there a way to adjust the concertina type opening mechanism to pull in the top left corner more and thus make the seal?

Is it these type hinges :?: If so, at the top you will see a plastic V shape which push the window in the final position and sometime they cracked or shattered so the window stay out slightly
Thanks for the reply, I shall have a look tonight when I get home.

Looked last night. Couldn't see any form of plastic thingy at the top although there was one half way up the side which seemed to be in OK condition.

Found that by making sure that I pull the window firmly in whilst closing it that it seems to do the trick, although it wasn't so windy so hard to tell on the draught front
