I have a bellows with a buckle in a couple of the folds. It's only happening on the top side.
I've tried leaving it held snugly in a fitted case for couple of weeks but no improvement.
Has anyone had this problem and found a solution?

Have some of the gussets been patched, maybe on the inside? That can cause unevenness.

Thanks Alex...a look inside revealed what was causing the problem. Someone fashioned three wire hex inserts and slipped them into the internal bellows folds. I think they were trying to overcome the problem of one corner collapsing inwards on expansion due to the glue failing on the card there. Radical solution!

That's a new one on me. 😳 For a couple of years I used something very similar as my car radio aerial, until someone nicked it (the aerial, not the car!). 😄

If corners are collapsed/ collapsing then please check the condition of the inner bellows hinges, if they are split you may have a bigger problem. If they are repaired then you have an explanation, split hinges are easy to repair, but to consequential damage may be less so.
