Yes it's a new guitar, but I was planning to bring the guitar to a tech next week for a pick-up swap anyway, so I will let him repair this for me.
If this is an easy fix, it's not worth sending the guitar back to the dealer/distributor, etc.
But once the fret is tapped back into place, will it stay there? or are chances that it will keep coming back out over time?
Like cougar said, there's no way to tell. If it's a good tech he should be able to do something to get you a semi permanent solution. Like I said there's plenty of stewmac articles covering the benefits of super-glue-ing stock frets. I've never had to glue frets, but I've had issues with snapping a nut and then not having the custom bone nut stay in place. I'm sure if he's a tech who's been around the block for a few years he should know what he's doing and be able to suggest something more competently than I could.
