Gopro hero 5 faulty mode button

[ Edited ]

I recently received a gopro hero 5 as a gift, it is less than a month old. The mode button has become faulty. It does not work with a normal button press, you have to press down with your nail in a specific place firmly to get it to operate. This is not ideal as It as I can not switch between photo and video with the press of a button. Not happy at all as have only used it a number of times in the last few weeks.

If you press deadcenter the mode button works correct?
