Looks like you gave it "character". There is nothing that is going to make it look like new. I would just seal it up and keep riding. Other than cosmetics, it looks like it's fine to me. There might be a repair shop or two that could do a decent job patching up the top sheet for you.

Of course if you can get warranty coverage that's best, otherwise that is very much a do it yourself repair if you want to do so, would take 15 mins to do.

Mix up a little two part epoxy, lift up the peeled part gently, paint the expoxy in there. Us a little 'C' clamp or two to press it all down while the epoxy sets. When the epoxy squeezes out the sides the broken part wipe it up right away so it doesn't stick to your topsheet and look ugly.
