Hardtop leak

So when it rains really hard my hardtop leaks in the top right corner where the top meets the windshield. It dosnt happen on the passenger side. There isnt any damage that I can see and the top and windshield seem identical on both sides. Anyone have any ideas? Does anyone know of a seal kit i can get? Thanks

The top right corner of the hardtop where it meets the windshield is the passenger side.

Have you ever removed the hardtop?...

take all the bolts holding the top to the jeep, then release the front clamps and lift up the top to see if the gasket is still there or if it got folded.
