    I had this on mine after a few weeks from new.
    It’s a floating window, that’s what the Audi called it, and sometimes the back and front gets misaligned. All you need to do is open it half way and gently lift the front and back of the window the open and close with the button. That worked for me. Well that’s what the Audi tech showed me.

    Pic of mine. The back wasn’t quite getting to the seal

    Take it back and have them look at it, you have a brand new car that isn't satisfactory...

    I took mine back and they showed me how to fix it in 3 seconds. Never happened again. Wish they told me over the phone rather than me driving 30 miles to them. Worth a try rather than trip to dealers especially if it’s raining.
    The tech did say dirt and stuff can get trapped in the seal and the window doesn’t go up evenly.

    Mine was 2 months old when it had that also had a broken headlight washer in that time.
    Sh1t happens and nothing is ever 100% that’s why we have warranty.

    Nothing. Just yanked the window back up and it’s been fine since.
