Re: question about a fret that's not seated right
I would hammer it in (carefully and "properly") and see where it goes from there.
The other option is to pull the fret, fix the crack, re-saw the slot and re-apply the fret. If you don't know how to do this, I would suggest the first option first. I don't know how bad the crack is. Also, pulling frets could damage the wood even more and if that happens, it will be suxorz for a bit.
