You might be waiting a while - of course Inventor will not unfold a jpg image. 

You will need to attach the ipt file here.

If you look in this area from the right side this face (and I assume the opposite face) is warped.

This was hard to see from the jpg you originally posted.

 

You will have to Delete Face and rebuild that area of the part.

Considering manufacturing tolerance - perhaps this is close enough.
