Ibanez Rocket Roll II fret issue.

Hey. I recently bought a 1982 Rocket Roll II (for the bargain price of 150!) and what a guitar that is... it's awesome.

Now, I didn't expect the frets to be in great condition, but I've noticed that at the treble side, as you go farther up the neck, you can actually fit a string under the gap between the fret and the fretboard.

Now, I'm no expert (hence why I'm here, asking the experts ) but I'm pretty sure this isn't how things should be. What should I do about this? I've been thinking of heating the fret up slightly with a hairdrier or something, and then just hitting the fret into place with a rubber mallet, to try and re-set it.

I'll take pictures tomorrow if pictures are required.
