    I believe it's just hammered in to place not glued

    If the slot that holds it is worn out your options are glue it or replace the cabinet piece. Nearly any wood glue should work.

    thank you all for the replies. i think the slot may be slightly worn. but the real issue is it's separating at the corner of the top, so it doesn't want to stay in place. so glue might be my only option.

    Glue is easiest. Dont need much and only at the end.
    Alternate idea ...

    Get it back in place properly, then clamp it but leave enough room to run a 1/16 drill bit near exposed end.
    Then tap a finish nail in and that might hold as well . This is reversible as well, whereas the glue might not be as easy - if that matters to you
