Hood won't close

Sorry guys for the noob question but I can't seem to close my hood. I had a 97 civic where I dropped the hood and it would close. Is this the same method with the 2010. I've dropped it twice but it doesn't close and I don't want to mess up anything. I tried pushing it to close but doesn't work either. Am I doing it wrong?

I would check the latch mechanism first. Maybe pull on the hood release lever again, then try to close it.

My hood isn't easy to close either, I'll just kind of slam it. Works fine.

yeah I was being too gentle when I was dropping the hood. Dropped it higher and it closed.
