My 72MM C PL filter rolled out of my camera bag accidentally with the filter inside the filter case. The case popped open when it hit the floor and the filter also hit the floor with the filter facing down.Luckily there is nothing broken. But when I was cleaning the filter at home , I noticed the filter lens is lose on the side facing the camera lens. Is this normal? ShouldI replace the filter?

Please help!

The filter was loose. I adjusted the plastic molding on the front of the filter and the filter seems secure now. I tried some shoots after the repair and everything seems fine.

That's not unusual...just as long as you don't see any chips or hairline cracks in the glass. A loose retaining ring is a minor fix.
